A growing number of prestigious, international institutions are embracing multilingual archive collections to broaden and enrich the resources available to their researchers and library users.

The EDP Sciences physics collection consists of the Journal de Physique archives (1872 to 1997), the Annales de Physique archives (1914 to 2009) and the EAS Publications Series archives (2001 to 2016). These archives represent more than 50,000 articles written over the course of 140 years of scientific discovery.

EDP Sciences is pleased to announce that Isabelle Auffret-Babak has joined the editorial team as Publishing Editor. Isabelle will primarily focus her efforts on the development of 4open, one of EDP Sciences’ flagship journals supporting open science. Additionally, she will support experienced colleagues in growing EDP Sciences’ journals and collection of books in physics, especially in the areas of atomic and molecular physics and optics.

We are pleased to announce that 4open has just been accepted into the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) where it joins over 13,500 other high quality, open access, peer-reviewed journals. These journals cover all areas of science, technology, medicine, social science and humanities. Indexation in the DOAJ means 4open is in compliance with the open access policy of the DOAJ and meets all the strict criteria required for inclusion.

EDP Sciences is pleased to join 1445 other organisations and 14540 individuals supporting the Declaration on Research Assessment(DORA). The declaration “recognizes the need to improve the ways in which the outputs of scholarly research are evaluated” and “is a worldwide initiative covering all scholarly disciplines and all key stakeholders including funders, publishers, professional societies, institutions, and researchers.” See the full list of signatories.

4open announces a new special issue published in Life Sciences (Medicine), “Parasitology and Carcinogenesis”, guest edited by Ijaz S. Jamall and Björn L.D.M. Brücher.
