  1. Proceedings of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (Comptes rendus de l’Académie bulgare des Sciences) publishes peer reviewed short reports of original scientific results in the field of mathematical, physical, chemical, biological, medical, Earth and life sciences, as well as engineering, forest and agrarian sciences.

They can further be expanded to be published elsewhere. Manuscripts should be written in English and should not exceed 8 standard typewritten pages (16 000 characters) including figures and tables (not more than 4).
  2. Comptes rendus also publishes Concise Review Papers (short surveys) at the invitation of the Editorial Board.

They should be presented in the form of a report according to the requirements of the journal not exceeding 20 standard pages.
