Some scientific journals are (or were) published on CD-ROM after their paper version has appeared and before being made available online (e.g. Bulletin critique des Annales islamologiques). Other publications, such as the Journal de parodontologie et d’implantologie orale, coexist in printed and CD-ROM versions.
The collection also includes “gray literature”, including in particular theses published in electronic form (diskettes, files, CD-ROM, etc.). These are published by certain higher education institutions such as the University of Montpellier 2 (e.g. theses on Life Sciences: Mémoires géosciences-Montpellier, published on CD-ROM since 2002).
Also worthy of mention are minutes from one-off and regular conferences on current topics in medicine, aerospace (e.g. conferences held by the European Space Agency), etc.
