EDP Sciences is pleased to share the progress of our journals in the recently announced Journal Citation Reports™ and CiteScores. The latest results not only demonstrate a collective and consistent performance across our publications but also highlight notable individual achievements within their respective fields.

We are pleased to announce the launch of a new Web of Conferences journal collection, Cahiers de l'Institut Pascal, on behalf of the Institut Pascal, Université Paris Saclay.

EDP Sciences, in collaboration with the European Southern Observatory (ESO) is delighted to announce the introduction of links between Astronomy & Astrophysics (A&A) articles and corresponding ESO datasets. This initiative establishes A&A as the first major astronomy journal to feature such links, significantly enhancing research discoverability and facilitating a more comprehensive reader experience.

Congratulations to the Société Française de Physique (SFP) on its 150th anniversary! We look forward to a year of celebrations marking this wonderful milestone which got underway on 16 January 2023 with a “Cérémonie d’inauguration” at the Sorbonne. Sylvie Retailleau (former Editor-in-Chief of J3EA), Françoise Combes (Associate Editor of Astronomy & Astrophysics) and Serge Haroche (Journal de Physique author) were the guests of honour and Agnès Henri, Managing Director also attending, was very proud of their connections with EDP Sciences.

We are delighted to release the Subscribe to Open (S2O) 2023 Transparency Report for our mathematics journals* co-published by EDP Sciences and the Société de Mathématiques Industrielles et Appliquées (SMAI). Following the announcement that the journals will continue to publish in open access in 2023, this report marks our third consecutive year of providing this comprehensive overview, reinforcing our commitment to transparency. By presenting a detailed analysis of metrics such as subscription prices, subscription renewals, costs, and usage data, it offers a comprehensive understanding of the effectiveness of the S2O initiative for these titles.

Many research papers published in mathematics journals include numerical results obtained through computation. By default, EDP Sciences has a policy of encouraging authors to upload data and code related to their research to an online repository, and to include a data availability statement and data/code citations in their articles. Five of the maths journals published by EDP Sciences in partnership with the Société de Mathématiques Appliquées et Industrielles (SMAI) have implemented a more prescriptive data sharing policy.

As an EPS Associate Member, EDP Sciences enjoys every opportunity to support and participate in EPS events. Isabelle Auffret-Babak, Senior Publisher, recently returned from two wonderful days in Naples where the EPS Young Minds Leadership Meeting 2023 took place. It was hosted by PONYS – Naples Young Minds (Physics and Optics Naples Young Students) and attracted around 100 participants.

Paris, France, 18 May 2023: EDP Sciences and the Société Française de Radioprotection (SFRP) announced today that they have decided against transitioning Radioprotection to open access under Subscribe to Open (S2O) in 2023. Despite concerted efforts to promote the initiative and reach the required subscription threshold, the financial viability of the transition was not achieved at this time. This decision underscores the reality that open access for S2O journals is not guaranteed unless subscriptions are renewed.

In 2022, we proudly announced our membership of the UN SDG Publishers Compact. Since then, we have been working steadily on the ten commitments all signatories undertake. In particular, “Actively promoting and acquiring content that advocates for themes represented by the SDGs, such as equality, sustainability, justice and safeguarding and strengthening the environment.”

Paris, France, 3 May 2023: Astronomy & Astrophysics (A&A) is pleased to announce that it will continue to publish its research in open access for the second consecutive year under the Subscribe to Open (S2O) model. In contrast to other core astronomy journals that have transitioned or will transition to open access via the Gold (APC) route, A&A has chosen a different approach to achieve immediate open access while minimizing any potential disruption to authors or subscribers. This decision reaffirms A&A's commitment to making its high-quality research easily accessible to the global scientific community, while also ensuring sustainability and financial stability for the journal.
