Writing Studio

Astronomy and Astrophysics (A&A) Journal and EDP Sciences are pleased to announce the launch of Writing Studio, a unique collaborative writing LaTex solution designed to simplify the process of writing an article collaboratively on a single version of a paper. Reinforcing an open-source strategy, EDP Sciences has chosen the Open Source ShareLateX to develop this new service.

EDP Sciences presents a new model where the author chooses their own fair price to publish an article in Open Access (OA).

The Liberty APC model means that authors can choose from a number of options, the level of article processing charge (APC) they will pay to publish their article - including an amount of 0€ in 2016. It is expected that they will investigate all options for funding, for example from their funding body, their institution or their organization, but ultimately it will be their decision how much they feel is a fair price to pay.

EDP Sciences and Astronomy & Astrophysics are glad to announce the "4th Scientific Writing for Young Astronomers", which will be held in Puerto Varas, Chile, from 19th to 22th April, 2016.

Altmetrics

EDP Sciences has recently added the Altmetric data for the following journals:
Astronomy & Astrophysics and Parasite

Altmetric data gives users a more complete picture of how people are engaging with scholarly literature by tracking a variety of sources, including news, social media, bookmarking and peer-review forums, to provide data on the online activity surrounding each research article.

Astronomy & Astrophysics is publishing a special feature of 46 articles that present the results obtained by the Rosetta mission before the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko reached its perihelion.

The articles published in this A&A special feature cover a variety of themes in cometary science and revolutionize the field in many ways.
