On 2 July 2021, the highly-distinguished title of “Knight of the Order of the Legion of Honour” (“Ordre national de la Légion d’honneur au grade de chevalier”) was bestowed upon Doctor Jacques Caton in recognition of 50 years of service to Orthopaedics and Traumatology surgery, and his role as spokesperson for the specialty in France. Doctor Caton was Secretary General, then President, of the National Trade Union of Orthopaedics and Traumatology Surgeons for over 20 years.

EDP Sciences is committed to supporting and respecting the rights and identities of all authors in accordance with the principles informing the Committee on Publication Ethics’ (COPE) working group. EDP Sciences has therefore introduced an author name change policy offering two routes to changing an author name on published papers in order to support anonymity for authors with a need for privacy.

As co-publisher of the European Physical Journal (EPJ) series of peer-reviewed journals alongside the Società Italiana di Fisica and Springer, we are pleased to share a short update on this year’s results in the latest Journal Citation Reports ™ (JCR) from Clarivate.

MMNP ranks Q1 following ground-breaking move to Subscribe-to-Open in 2020

Paris, France, 8 July 2021: We are pleased to report that our mathematics journals have performed particularly well in this year’s Journal Impact Factors ™ from Clarivate. The star performer is Mathematical Modelling of Natural Phenomena (MMNP) which increased by 153% (from 1.642 to 4.157) having already increased by 73% last year. It is now ranked 13/108 in “Mathematics, Interdisciplinary Applications”, 6/265 in “Mathematics, Applied” and 10/58 in “Mathematical & Computational Biology” – all Q1 or the top 25% of the world’s most-cited journals. Indeed, every EDP Sciences maths journal indexed in Web of Science ™ has received an increased impact factor contributing to an unprecedented year in which all eligible EDP Sciences journals increased.

It is with great pleasure that the publishers of the European Physical Journal D: Atomic, Molecular, Optical and Plasma Physics announce the appointment of Prof. Dr. Joachim Burgdörfer (Vienna University of Technology, Austria) as Editor-in-Chief, effective 1 July 2021. A long-standing member of the Editorial Board of EPJ D, he succeeds Prof. Dr. Andrey V. Solov'yov, who steps down after almost 7 years in the EiC role. Read more on the EPJ portal.

Paris, France, 1 July 2021: In the latest Journal Citation Reports ™ (JCR) from Clarivate, every eligible* EDP Sciences journal indexed in Web of Science ™ has received an increased impact factor. Overall, there is a 32% increase for the twenty one journals compared to last year. Individual increases range from a modest rise to an impressive 225%. We recognise that impact factors are but one way to measure quality, nevertheless, they continue to be widely-used and recognised and therefore remain significant.

We are delighted to welcome Dr. Thierry Maré to the Web of Conferences editorial board where he will support E3S Web of Conferences and the areas of Environment, Energy, Earth Sciences and related subjects.

An Open Access initiative to sustain the barrier-free availability of EDP Sciences' complete mathematics portfolio

Paris / Berlin, June 10, 2021. In May 2021, EDP Sciences announced that its complete mathematics journal portfolio of six subscription titles—including the flagship journal "ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical analysis"— transitioned to Open Access (OA) under the innovative Subscribe-to-Open (S2O) model. In partnership with Knowledge Unlatched (KU), EDP Sciences will be asking libraries and institutions currently subscribing to any of the six journals to renew for 2021 and beyond on a S2O basis, thus contributing to maintaining these journals Open Access in years to come.

In July 2020, we were pleased to announce that SICOT-J had been accepted for indexation in Scopus, widely recognised as one of the world’s leading science databases. SICOT-J has now been listed under “Orthopedics and Sports Medicine” and “Surgery” and all content from 2020 to date has been included. The process of listing articles from 2015-2019 is in progress and we expect all content to be fully indexed by Scopus shortly.
