Reports of the Academy of Sciences

The Académie des sciences, adhering wholeheartedly to the incentives carried by the 2018 National Plan for Open Science, wished to evolve the publishing of its Proceedings in line with these principles. The seven disciplinary journals that constitute them are thus disseminated in open access diamond since January 1, 2020.
