Duke University Press Signs French National License Agreement with ISTEX

istex.pngDuke University Press has signed a major agreement with ISTEX, a French national licensing program, to make the Duke Mathematical Journal (DMJ) available to French research institutions.

With this agreement, 112 volumes of content from DMJ are made available to millions of users at over 330 French universities, grande écoles, research institutes, and libraries. Published by Duke University Press since its inception in 1935, DMJ is one of the world’s leading mathematical journals. DMJ emphasizes the most active and influential areas of current mathematics and has several distinguished French mathematicians on its editorial board. The journal has published work by the Fields Medalists Cédric Villani, Ngô Bảo Châu, Jean-Pierre Serre, and Artur Avila.

Since 2012, ISTEX has facilitated the massive acquisition of archives of scientific and mathematical production in all disciplines made available to public institutions of higher education and research in France on one central platform.

David Aymonin, Head of the Bibliographic Agency for Higher Education, says, “All the four partners leading ISTEX are happy to add quality mathematics content from the Duke Mathematical Journal to the ISTEX initiative through our arrangement with Duke University Press. We see this partnership as bringing important mathematics scholarship to more researchers throughout France.”

“The Press is delighted to have the opportunity to participate in the ISTEX project by offering content from the Duke Mathematical Journal, including eminent French scholars, for use by mathematicians throughout France. We are grateful to TSP Diffusion for their support,” says Cason Lynley, Director of Marketing and Sales at Duke University Press.

DMJ content is available to ISTEX institutions on the Project Euclid platform. Read the full announcement.
