EDP Sciences have today released information on the findings and recommendations of a working group into the peer review process. The meeting involved a committee of experts linked to the European Physical Journal (EPJ) including Editors-in-Chief, Associate-Editors, members of the Steering Committee and researchers involved in Scientific and Technical Information. EPJ itself, represents 25 European Physical Societies through its Scientific Advisory Committee.

The aim of the workshop held in Paris in May was to consider whether peer review is adapting to present day demands and constraints, and to consider and make recommendations to EPJ and their partners regarding new practices and improvements that could be made to their procedures.

EDP Sciences will attend the annual SMAI meeting, which will take place from 8 to 12 June, in Les Karellis, France.

As publisher of the SMAI journals, ESAIM: Control, Optimisation and Calculus of Variations, ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis, ESAIM: Probability and Statistics, ESAIM: Proceedings and Surveys et RAIRO - Operations Research, EDP Sciences quite naturally is the partner of this event.

It is also with great pleasure that we sponsor the best poster award.

The SMAI Congress aims to bring together the community of applied mathematics and take stock of recent advancements in research. It helps researchers, academia and industry, dialogue and share results, ideas and issues. It gives the opportunity to young researchers, doctoral and post-doctoral students to present their findings and get known.

EDP Sciences and the French Society of Oral Surgery (SFCO) have announced the transition of Médecine Buccale Chirurgie Buccale from a subscription based journal to full Open Access starting with the first published issue of 2015. All future volumes and issues of the journal will be Open Access under a Creative Commons license 4.0.

This transition is driven by the ongoing movement for scientific literature to be Open Access for scientists, policy makers and the general public interested in research, and especially by the growing demands from funding agencies to ensure free access to research they have funded.

Simultaneously, access is given to the complete archives of the journal published with EDP Sciences, back to Volume 7, Issue 1. For members of SFCO, the printed version of the journal will continue to be published.
