Modern scientific periodicals numbered thousands of journals. The beginning of this was laid on January 5, 1665 in Paris. "Journal of scientists" - the so-called first scientific journal in the world.

The Journal of Scientists is the so-called first in the world scientific journal

Although the official publisher of it was a certain Edouville, whose name flaunted on the cover of the Journal of Scientists, the real master of the whole affair was Denny de Sallo, an adviser to the Parisian parliament. He was a man of versatile interests and for many years made extracts for himself from various books.

"Journal of scientists" came out for several months, after which it was closed by a royal decree: Sallo refused to give the prepared journal numbers for a preview. The publication resumed the following year, when the abbot J. Gallois, a mathematician and Hellenist, a member of the Paris Academy of Sciences, took the lead. Under him, the issue of the "Journal of scientists" was not interrupted, but it became much rarer - one or two issues a year. Only in 1675-84, when the editor became abbot de la Roque, the regular publication of the Journal of Scientists was established: twice a month.

In 1701, the "Journal of scientists" falls under the control of the publishers' bureau, headed by the president of the Paris Academy, Abbot Bignon. Since then, the first scientific journal has become, as it were, the official organ of the Academy, and on its pages appear the writings of famous scientists. The Great French Revolution of 1789-1794 interrupted the publication, which resumed only in 1816 and after that the "Journal of scientists" existed for almost another hundred years.
