D-Day for Academic-Led Publishing Day
The centre Mersenne is taking part of the first edition of the Academic-Led Publishing Day, this very 7 February 2019.
This event, dedicated to academic-led publishing initiatives, is initiated by Scholastica and Free Journal Network, and aims at creating an open dialogue about programs and economic models between stakeholders.
A series of events (virtual and in-person) will be organised throughout the day, and resrouces will be made available on the website.
AIF are now web-published on the Mersenne Platform
The Annales de l'Institut Fourier, previously published by Cedram have now joined the Centre Mersenne. You can now access all their content via their new website, url https://aif.centre-mersenne.org/. What's new? A new logo, more info...
To manage their editorial process, the AIF also have a new OJS Instance instead of their old Ruche system.
Happy New Year
The Mersenne team wishes you a happy new year full of open access projects!

EMS Newsletter of September 2018 contains an article explaining how the editors of Journal of Algebraic Combinatorics (Springer published) resigned and reformed as Algebraic Combinatorics, web published by the Centre Mersenne.
On the Notices of AMS of August 2018, Mark C. Wilson, one of Algebraic Combinatorics's editors, explains his point of view about fair open access's ecosystem by Mark C. Wilson.
Both articles mention the Centre Mersenne.

French Universities towards Open Access
On April 19th, University of Lorraine announced that it would not renew its subscription to the Springer Big Deal. It will instead support open access publishing projects such as SciPost, OpenEdition...
Besides, Rennes University also canceled its subscription to Springer and will finance three open access projects, among which the newly-created Annales Henri Lebesgue, a mathematics journal, published by the Centre Mersenne.
