Since its beginning, the Centre has devoted great effort to ensure that the texts of its courses and lectures reach a wide audience. The lecture notes which are distributed to the participants during the courses, are the source from which the lecturers subsequently prepare their final manuscripts for publication. Since its foundation, the Centre has established a cooperation with Springer Verlag Publishing Company, Vienna, for the worldwide distribution of the lecture notes.
Until 2015 the publishing took place at the Centre’s publishing premises. Since 2016 printing is taken care of by Springer.
To date, more than 600 books have been published, constituting an important collection of high-level scientific works which serve to supply the international scientific community with up-to-date information on some of the most recent scientific developments in the fields of mechanics, and related subjects.
The historical texts have been reproduced by Springer.
The Series Editors are the Rectors and the Secretary General.
CISM has produced also a serie of books in Italian, some of which have been published by Flaccovio
In 1973, CISM and Pergamon Press, Oxford, established a bimonthly international journal for up-to-the-minute communication entitled “Mechanics Research Communications”. The journal, which accepts contributions on mechanics of fluids, solids, particles, continua, rigid bodies, mechanisms, systems and so forth, plays an important role in implementing CISM’s activities.
