Bulletin Mathématique de la Société des Sciences Mathématiques de Roumanie has been first published in 1892. The first series appeared between 1892-1916 and 1922-1947, while the new series has been published since 1957.
The journal was edited between 1892 and 1896 by Societatea de Sciinte Fizice din Bucuresci under the title Buletinul Societatii de Sciinte Fizice, and its first director was C. I. Istrati. At the same time another academic society, Societatea Amici Sciintelor Matematice, published Buletinul Societatii Amici Sciintelor Matematice (1894-1896) with Gh. Titeica as Editor-in-Chief.
In 1897 the scientific societies from Bucharest merged into Societatea de Sciinte din Bucuresc, which changed its name to Societatea Româna de Stiinte in 1903. The first president was C. Gogu until his death on 31 January 1897, followed by C. I. Istrati. It was then decided to publish one single journal under the name Buletinul Societatii de Stiinte din Bucuresti. C. I. Istrati was the director of the Editorial Board until 1906. The journal published articles in mathematics, as well as in physics, chemistry and the natural sciences, edited in Romanian, French and German. After 1906 the Editorial Board was chaired by N. Coculescu (1906-1907), D. Emmanuel (1907-1915), and Tr. Lalescu (1922). The journal did not appear during the first world war to which Romania took part between 1916 and 1918, and resumed its publication only in 1922.
In 1923 Societatea de Stiinte din Bucuresti was restructured into a new association, Societatea Româna de Stiinte, with several sections. The Bulletin was divided in three journals devoted to mathematics, physics and chemistry. Among these, only Bulletin Mathématique continued its publication after the second world war. The journal was called Buletinul de Stiinte Matematice Pure si Aplicate -- Bulletin des Sciences Mathématiques Pures et Appliquées, and was published by the Mathematical Section of the Societatea Româna de Stiinte. The Editorial Board was chaired by Tr. Lalescu (1923-1929), Gh. Titeica (1930-1932, 1937), D. Pompeiu (1933-1936, 1938-1940), O. Onicescu (1941-1944) and M. Nicolescu (1945-1947), and included among other mathematicians R. Raclis (1928-1933), Gh. Mihoc (1932-1933), and N. Teodorescu (1941-1947). Between 1923 and 1947 were published 22 volumes (vol 26-48), and the journal continued its appearance even during Romania's participation to the second world war between 1941-1945.
It was agreed that Bulletin Mathématique would continue the journal founded in 1892, under the new series begun in 1957. The journal has since been published regularly with four issues yearly, and it has accepted articles in French, English, German and Italian. The journal's name changed slightly over the years, following the changes in Romania's official name and implicitly, in that of Societatea de Stiinte Matematice. The journal appeared successively as Bulletin Mathématique de la Société des Sciences Mathématiques et Physiques de la R. P. R. (1957-1963), Bulletin Mathématique de la Société des Sciences Mathématiques de la R. P. R. (1964-1965), Bulletin Mathématique de la Société des Sciences Mathématiques de la R. S. Roumanie (1966-1989), Bulletin Mathématique de la Société des Sciences Mathématiques de Roumanie (since 1990).
Between 1957-1993 the Editorial Board was coordinated by N. Teodorescu. During 1994-2000 N. Teodorescu was honorary president of the editorial committee, while I. D. Ion served as executive president and D. Stefanescu as scientific secretary. I. D. Ion continued as president of the Editorial Board between 2001-2003, with scientific secretaries R. N. Gologan and D. Stefanescu. C. Gherghe has also been scientific secretary since 2002.
In 2004 the Editorial Board was enlarged by including several prestigious academics from abroad. Currently, I. Tomescu is Editor-in-Chief, D. Stefanescu is associate editor, and C. Gherghe is scientific secretary.
Between 1957-2004 were published 47 volumes in the new series.
Between 1892-2004 were published overall 95 volumes.
