EDP Sciences is pleased to announce the successful candidate for its sponsorship of an international librarian to attend the SLA 2019 Annual Conference in Cleveland, Ohio. The successful candidate is Muhumuza Emmy from Busitema University,Uganda.

In addition to attending the conference, Muhumuza will become a member of the SLA and join the Physics-Astronomy-Mathematics (PAM) Division for one year. He will also participate in the PAM International Relations Committee for one year.

4open is pleased to announce the new special issue “Mathematical Models”, guest edited by Dr. Fernanda Ferreira and Dr. Flávio Ferreira.

This special issue follows the 16th International Conference of Numerical Analysis and Applied Mathematics (ICNAAM 2018) where, as part of a special collaborative issue, 4open welcomed submissions developed from research presented at this conference.

Last year we congratulated the authors of New advances in the laboratory characterization of refractories: testing and modelling for winning the 2018 Alfred W. Allen Award. The authors are: Jacques Poirier, Eric Blond, Emmanuel de Bilbao, Rudy Michel, Antoine Coulon, Jean Gillibert, Michel Boussuge, Yang Zhang, David Ryckelynk, Gilles Dusserre, Thierry Cutard, and Paul Leplay.

This is the third free article in the new ‘Key summaries’ series from 4open. The article offers an easy to understand description of the special issue: Disruption of homeostasis-induced signaling and crosstalk in the carcinogenesis paradigm “Epistemology of the origin of cancer” by Björn Brücher and Ijaz Jamall. This was recently published in 4open and reveals the robust evidence for their new hypothesis about the origins of most cancers.

This is the second free article in the new ‘Key summaries’ series from 4open. The article offers an easy to understand version of “German nursing shortage in hospitals - Homemade by Profititis?” by Björn Brücher and Daniela Deufert; a study recently published in 4open which examines the causes and consequences of a nurse shortage in German hospitals.

Two articles from the EDP Sciences journals EPJ Applied Physics and Mechanics & Industry have been recognised as highly cited papers on Web of Science using data from Essential Science IndicatorsSM. Only the top 1% of articles achieve this status.

Essential Science IndicatorsSM, hosted on the InCites platform, collates data on highly cited papers and shares it with Web of Science from Clarivate Analytics. These papers sit within the top 1% of each of ESI’s 22 subject areas and are defined as “…this highly cited paper received enough citations to place it in the top 1% of its academic field based on a highly cited threshold for the field and publication year.”

“Recent advances in the understanding of homogeneous dielectric barrier discharges” (Massines et al., 2009), published in EPJ Applied Physics, discusses the physics of homogeneous dielectric barrier discharges at atmospheric pressure along with the mechanisms controlling homogeneity during gas breakdown and discharge development.

Astrophysics, mathematics, medicine… EDP Sciences is a respected and well-known publisher of books, journals and conference proceedings, but have you ever wondered how EDP Sciences started? How was Marie Curie involved?

The new EDP Sciences short story video provides a fascinating insight into the history of the organisation and its present-day activities. Take a walk through time with Madame Curie to meet those who have helped shape our organisation. They include Nobel Prize winners and recipients of other prestigious awards. From the start, EDP Sciences has embraced innovation and now leads important initiatives in open access and open science and actively supports early career researchers. Marie Curie and her founding colleagues would be proud of the developments and achievements since 1920 and would be happy in the knowledge that their pioneering spirit is still very much in evidence.

The 4open journal is currently looking for a volunteer PhD student or early career professional to assist in the management of the 4open Twitter account @4openjournal.

4open is a multidisciplinary open access journal that was launched by EDP Sciences in 2017 focussing on life sciences and medicine, chemistry, physics and mathematics. As the journal is attracting more submissions and generating more content, we would appreciate the help of an engaged individual who is interested in gaining experience in the academic publishing industry, and who wants a better insight into how a professional global publisher works.

This is the first free article in the new ‘Key summaries’ series from 4open. The article offers an easy to understand version of “Visual gene network analysis of aging-specific gene co-expression in human indicates overlaps with immuno-pathological regulations” by Bibhu Parida et al., published in 4open in 2018, which examines the complex process of aging to identify a set of candidate genes that are involved in organism aging processes, using a microarray meta-analysis approach.

The ‘Key summaries’ article uses non-technical language and provides definitions to help non-experts understand, in this instance, “What happens to our bodies as we age, and why?”.

Using publicly available datasets, researchers have found that genes involved in infections and inflammatory responses are highly expressed with age, suggesting links between infection/inflammation and the ageing process."

4open, the multidisciplinary, open access journal that publishes all types of articles, from different fields in natural sciences, technology, and medicine, is pleased to announce a new partnership with SciencePOD to make the journal’s topical scientific content available to a wider audience.
