Directory of Scientific and Technical Publications


Types of publication

Types of documents indexed in the  Répertoire des publications scientifiques et techniques  are including magazine articles, conference papers, books and book chapters, technical reports and patents. All theses and dissertations accepted by the school have also been indexed.

Processing of information

Records downloaded from bibliographic databases are imported into the EndNote software. Information processing involves elimination of duplicate entries, standardizing content in some fields and identifying the various Polytechnique authors. As well, we add the names of the departments in which they worked at the time of publication. Also included are the Web address of the page set aside for Polytechnique authors on the BRCDT site. Lastly, the Web version of the directory and the authors’ personalized publications lists are is produced from the EndNote version.

Annual updates
