DMTCS is an open-access scientific journal that has been online since 1998. It is a member of the Free Journal Network.

DMTCS is organized as an overlay journal. Both submission and access are free. Please see https://www.episciences.org/ for a description. 

The current issues of DMTCS are:

  • regular issue 24:2
  • regular issue 25:1
  • vol. 23:2, special issue in honour of Maurice Pouzet
  • vol. 22:2, Permutation Patterns 2019, closed

All volumes of DMTCS are available through the menu on the left side of this page.


We only deal with submissions by authors directly through this website. In particular, we do not accept submissions from third parties.

There is no charge for publication and access to DMTCS, and there will never be.

There is also no possibility to speed up publication by paying a fee.

Anybody who proposes to you to handle a paper for publication in DMTCS and asks you for money is probably a criminal, and you should report them to the authorities of your country.

Authors need to deposit their manuscript in an open access repository (e.g. arXiv or HAL) and then submit it to DMTCS (an account on the platform is required). If needed, further versions will have to be uploaded to the chosen OA repository. Please refer to the site documentation to learn about the submission procedure.


DMTCS is published by a French association of the same name in cooperation with the Episciences Initiative.
