SABIX is a research group created in 1987 to highlight the academic heritage of the École polytechnique. The journal has existed since the same period and informs members of its activities and projects. It is also open to all research work based on the school's archives. SABIX's activities are an intregral part of the school's policy, and run in close collaboration with the former students' association and with the Fondation de l’École polytechnique. The Bulletin de la SABIX is published twice yearly. Most issues are theme issues but occasionally also feature conference proceedings. Numbers 23 (2000) to 43 (2009) are already accessible in full text on the journal's site.
