In 2020, we were proud to announce the launch of NESTOR (New Editorial System Tool for Research), a brand-new submission system and the first to fully integrate video submissions. Now, just a few months later, we are glad to confirm the full integration of ORCID in NESTOR. This development significantly increases the features and benefits offered by NESTOR and further cements EDP Sciences’ membership of ORCID.

We are pleased to announce that 23 EDP Sciences’ journals have recently been awarded the DOAJ Seal for best practice in open access publishing. Only around 10% of journals indexed in the DOAJ are awarded the DOAJ Seal, so it is a gratifying mark of recognition of the excellent work our journals are doing.

Have you ever wondered about the European Physical Journal (EPJ) series of journals and wanted to find out more? Three new videos outline the history and aims of the journals, why authors should consider them for submissions and how published work is disseminated.

It is with great pleasure that we announce an extension to the agreement between Technische Informationsbibliothek (TIB) German National Library of Science and Technology and Web of Conferences, the open access platform from EDP Sciences. The agreement offers a consortium discount of 15 percent for the publication of conference proceedings and has been extended for a further two years until the end of 2022.

To celebrate our 100th anniversary in 2020, we are delighted to have commissioned a souvenir poster from Morgane Parisi, Illustrator, Studio Brou.

We are proud to highlight that Web of Conferences, the open access platform devoted to the publication of scientific conference proceedings, has received outstanding feedback from conference organisers regarding publication times in 2020. Indeed, for many, this is now one of the main reasons for choosing Web of Conferences

.

It is with great pleasure that we are able to share news of a recent award to Daniel Lincot, Director of Research at the CNRS, Institut Photovoltaïque d'Ile de France (IPVF) and Co-Editor-in-Chief of EPJ Photovoltaics. The prestigious ‘Prix Ivan Peychès’ has been given annually since 1979 to "reward work relating to applications in the study of non-metallic materials, particularly vitreous materials or solar energy or, failing that, in the field of applied sciences".

As we approach the end of a difficult 2020, EDP Sciences is pleased to host the fourth scientific writing masterclass with the Université Paris Saclay. Taking place online 14-15 December 2020, this masterclass aims to support distance learning for researchers and PhD students in the engineering and materials science discipline.

Paris, France, 3 December 2020: EDP Sciences and the Société de Mathématiques Appliquées et Industrielles (SMAI) are delighted to learn that SMAI’s application for funding from the Fonds national pour la science ouverte (FNSO) has been successful. SMAI and EDP Sciences can therefore press ahead with plans to transition the maths journals1 they publish in partnership to open access under the Subscribe to Open model with the necessary financial support to give this initiative the best possible chance of success.

EPJ Web of Conferences is pleased to welcome to its platform the proceedings from ND 2019: International Conference on Nuclear Data for Science and Technology, at which scientists and engineers were invited “to present their achievements, share their insights and facilitate potential cooperation”.
