Paris, France, 21 July 2020: On 21 July 1920, a group of far-sighted scientists and industrialists came together to create La Société du Journal de Physique et Le Radium which, over time, became EDP Sciences. They included Marie Curie, Louis de Broglie, Paul Langevin, Jean Perrin, Louis Lumière and Antoine Béclère. Today, despite the challenging circumstances of our anniversary year, we are proud to mark this historic milestone with the release of our anniversary film, “Pour ‘l’amour de notre science’ – one hundred years of publishing excellence”.

We are pleased to announce that Acta Acustica, the Journal of the European Acoustics Association, has just been accepted into the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) where it joins over 12000 other high quality, open access, peer-reviewed journals. These journals cover all areas of science, technology, medicine, social science and humanities. This is a great step forwards for Acta Acustica which became the first acoustics journal of a learned society to transition to open access at the beginning of 2020. Indexation in the DOAJ means Acta Acustica is in compliance with the open access policy of the DOAJ and meets all the strict criteria required for inclusion.
