We are proud to report that EDP Sciences has joined the SDG Publishers Compact. Since it was launched in 2020 in collaboration with the International Publishers Association, the SDG Publishers Compact has helped to focus the minds and work of publishers on the seventeen UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

In September, we were pleased to announce a new, online series of Science Publishing and Scientific Writing Masterclasses for researchers and students in China. The series was coordinated by the Beijing office of EDP Sciences and designed to support anyone wishing to write and/or publish internationally. Researchers from institutions throughout China were invited to attend the Masterclasses which were broadcast via the SciChina video channel, the KouXiang Academic platform and the Scientific Cloud platform. The last of the four sessions took place on 13 December and we are delighted to report the series has been a resounding success.

EDP Sciences and TIB continue their successful cooperation

EDP Sciences and TIB – Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology have renewed their longstanding Open Access Agreement for another year, benefitting authors affiliated with academic institutions across Germany. The agreement continues to offer a 20% discount on Article Processing Charges (APCs) in 2023 and covers all EDP Sciences journals that are financed through the APC model.

We are pleased to inform you that Security and Safety is accepting submissions for its Special Issue on “Security and Safety in Unmanned Systems”. Unmanned systems are machines or devices that are equipped with necessary data processing units, sensors, control, communication and computation systems, including unmanned aircraft, ground mobile robots/vehicles, surface/underwater vehicles, satellites, and other unconventional structures.

We are pleased to share the Astronomy & Astrophysics (A&A) Subscribe to Open (S2O) 2022 Transparency Report. This is the first transparency report and provides a range of information related to the A&A Subscribe to Open program including:

Following a period of re-evaluation by Scopus, it has been confirmed that E3S Web of Conferences meets the content selection standards of Scopus. E3S Web of Conferences will therefore continue to be indexed in Scopus and any content that was paused during the re-evaluation period will be added to Scopus by the end of the year.

We are pleased to announce a new chapter in our longstanding partnership with Ifremer (French National Research Institute for Ocean Science) and IRD (French National Research Institute for Sustainable Development). These two leading marine science organisations have committed to sponsoring Aquatic Living Resources (ALR) as a diamond open access journal with immediate effect. Diamond open access enables all papers to be freely available without any subscriptions or publication fees for authors thanks to the support of Ifremer and IRD. The ALR archives are also now freely available.

We are pleased to inform you that Security and Safety is accepting submissions for its Special Issue on “Security and Safety in the “Metaverse””. The term “Metaverse” was first used in the science fiction novel “Snow Crash” in 1992 and describes “a virtual world parallel to the real world”. Thirty years later, and especially since 2021, the “Metaverse” is more popular than ever and considers various information technologies such as virtual reality, artificial intelligence, and communication networks.

The Journal of ExtraCorporeal Technology moves to EDP Sciences and becomes fully open access

We are delighted to introduce National Science Open (NSO), a new international, peer-reviewed, open access journal. NSO disseminates the most influential research of profound impact in advancing human knowledge, covering the full arc of natural sciences and engineering and is supported by the Chinese Academy of Sciences. It is led by Editor-in-Chief, Professor Yue Zhang, University of Science and Technology Beijing. There are also six Executive Editors-in-Chief representing different disciplines and all of them are members of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
