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.

Press talks about Algebraic Combinatorics and Mersenne

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.
