The Editor in Chief and the Publisher are pleased to announce a recent cooperation between Europhysics Letters (EPL) and the HAL (Hyper Article on Line) system set-up by the French CNRS. This is a scientific archive system, providing also a direct interface to the LANL (Los Alamos National Laboratory) preprint server.

Our agreement allows authors to upload files containing scientific articles in the HAL database and eventually submit the same files to Europhysics Letters. While the HAL interface offers a free availability online of the documents, these documents do not benefit from a scientific evaluation by peers until they are submitted to a journal. Technically, submission to EPL from HAL is very simple. After registering in the HAL database, a button invites you to submit to EPL as well.
