Now with E-first there is no reason to wait for printed issues or the completion of an issue of The European Physical Journal - Applied Physics.

Using DOIs, articles are available on line as soon as they have been proofread by the author. On E-first the articles are published in their final form. E-first is not a pre-print service, articles are peer-reviewed and author corrected.

In consequence:

  • e-form = final form

  • faster publication

  • proper citation via DOIs
