The Bulletin de la Société Mathématique de France
is an international journal which publishes articles in both English
and French. It was founded in 1873, and it has published works by some
of the most prestigious mathematicians, including for example H.
Poincaré, E. Borel, E. Cartan, A. Grothendieck and J. Leray. It
continues to be a journal of the highest mathematical quality,
using a rigorous refereeing process, as well as a discerning
selection procedure. Its editorial board
members have diverse specializations in mathematics, ensuring
that articles in all areas of mathematics are considered. Promising
work by young authors is encouraged. Four issues comprising a total of
around eight hundred pages are published a year.
In 1964, the Bulletin de la Société Mathématique de France also started publishing a supplement, the Mémoires de la Société Mathématique de France,
dedicated to monographs, or series of articles devoted to one topic. In
the memoirs, the SMF publishes research articles of the highest quality
that are at least eighty, and more often between one hundred and two
hundred pages. The Mémoires de la Société Mathématique de France has the same editorial board as that of the Bulletin de la Société Mathématique de France, and six volumes of memoirs appear yearly.
