Novi Commentarii academiae scientiarum imperialis Petropolitanae

(New memoirs of the imperial academy of sciences in St. Petersburg)


The successor journal to the Commentarii, the Novi Commentarii was the second journal series of the St. Petersburg Academy, and was published in 21 volumes between 1747 and 1778. Its genesis was the political chaos of the time, which by 1750, had caused significant publication lags in the Commentarii. By this time, publication of the Commentarii was ten years behind authorship. In the following year, articles written over the course of six years were bound together into two final volumes (13 and 14), and publication then passed to the Novi Commentarii.

Euler published extensively in the Novi Commentarii, ultimately authoring 179 articles for the journal, as shown below:
