Paris, France 5 June 2019. EDP Sciences (EDPS) and the European Acoustics Association (EAA) are delighted to announce their partnership to publish Acta Acustica united with Acustica (AAuA) from January 2020. The partners are also pleased to announce that from this date there will be two additional major changes to the journal:

  • The journal will become a fully gold open access journal ensuring the highest possible accessibility to quality research in the field of acoustics.
  • The journal’s name will change (a further announcement will be made later this year).

The EAA’s journal (currently AAuA), is an international, peer-reviewed journal publishing original scientific research on all subjects in the field of acoustics and on engineering applications. The editor-in-chief is Professor Jean Kergomard, the Director of Research at the Laboratoire de Mécanique et d’Acoustique, CNRS. The journal includes scientific papers, technical and applied papers, book reviews, short communications, doctoral thesis abstracts.and on occasion, special issues and review articles are published.

“The journal will become one of the first in the field of acoustics to be fully open access”, said Jorge Patrico, EAA President. “The growing demand for open access from both the scholarly community and the research funding bodies in light of Plan S, makes this the right time to make this change. We are extremely pleased to partner with EDP Sciences and excited about the opportunities to come with reinforcing the journal’s position as a leading voice in the field of acoustics”.

Claus Roll, Publishing Editor at EDPS, said, “At EDP Sciences we have a commitment to open access and we are greatly looking forward to a partnership with EAA and with their journal. It’s a privilege to work with such an esteemed organization as EAA in order to help their journal grow for its future in open access by providing acousticians with a global platform for sharing their work beyond the reach of the traditional research community, and supporting the open scholarship agenda.”

The journal will publish articles under a CC-BY license, enabling authors to be fully compliant with any open access requirements of funding organizations to which they apply. Members of EAA will receive a discount on the article processing charge, and acousticians of all countries are welcome to publish their results supported by granted projects in the journal.
