Our services


Upon acceptation, the journal will benefit from the services associated to Publication: online publishing, visibility and interoperability and long-term preservation and included in the Maintenance Service.

Online Publication

The centre Mersenne creates for each member journal a customised website, according to the editorial team wishes.

We take care of the form: we adapt the model (we can propose you models or you come with your own).

You take care of the content: each website comes with a very userfriendly CMS that will enable you to easily admin your content.

The centre Mersenne hosts and maintains the publication’s website.

A LaTeX layout will be created according to the visual identity of the publication, even if your journal mainly deals with Word format.

The LaTeX model uses the cedram class and the cedrics tools for a good integration on the Mersenne platform.

Existing systems for journals currently being produced are on a dedicated page.

Existing systems for authors are on a dedicated page.

Visibility and interoperability

A DOI (Digital Object Identifier) will be automatically assigned to each published document. DOI (Digital Object Identifier) is a persistent unique identifier attached to each article to identify content and provide a persistent link to its location on the Internet, such as: (=prefix, a digit assigned to Centre Mersenne common to all articles published on Mersenne)/suffix, which depends on the journal. This service is offered via Crossref.

This service is offered via Crossref.

The platform is interoperable with relevant digital infrastructures (Eudml, ABES, BASE, databases indexing scientific publications, etc.) which allows free and systematic downloading. All content can be uploaded via OAI-PMH in oai_dc and XML JATS.

For each article reference put online by the centre Mersenne or cited by one of these articles, the associated identifiers are periodically searched in several databases automatically. A text-mining tool automatically detects and enriches bibliographic references. Les services interrogés périodiquement sont : Crossref, MathSciNet, ZbMath, …The services surveyed periodically are: Crossref, MathSciNet, ZbMath

The centre Mersenne helps editorial teams to improve their presence in scientific databases and search engines. The centre Mersenne automatically adds all new journals to BASE, Core and Unpaywall. We also offer help with applying to the DOAJ (several of our journals have been awarded the DOAJ Seal, a guarantee of editorial quality), as well as monitoring the visibility of journals in the main scientific databases and search engines.

Long-term Archiving

The centre Mersenne has subscribed to the CLOCKSS permanent archiving solution: all the content of a Publication is automatically archived via CLOCKSS

CLOCKSS is a non-profit organisation that archives the contents of publications and guarantees to make them freely accessible in the event of the publisher’s bankruptcy, the withdrawal of a title’s online databases, the deletion of its archives or the disappearance of the centre Mersenne.

The centre Mersenne gives the CLOCKSS solution controlled access to all its preservation content.

Transfer will be done per discipline, when the digital archives exist in the discipline, of all the published content of a Publication: all the published content through the Mersenne website is also saved on digital archives/libraries per discipline.
Ex. for mathematical content, Numdam, the French digital mathematics library.

The centre Mersenne encourages author self-archiving of all content. All the publications members of the Centre Mersenne do accept authors self-archiving (see SHERPA/RoMEO).
