Paris, France 5 June 2019. EDP Sciences (EDPS) and the European Acoustics Association (EAA) are delighted to announce their partnership to publish Acta Acustica united with Acustica (AAuA) from January 2020. The partners are also pleased to announce that from this date there will be two additional major changes to the journal:

  • The journal will become a fully gold open access journal ensuring the highest possible accessibility to quality research in the field of acoustics.
  • The journal’s name will change (a further announcement will be made later this year).

Oyster reefs are among the most endangered marine habitats on earth and restoration projects are gaining momentum in Europe.

The open access review article "The Native Oyster Restoration Alliance (NORA) and the Berlin Oyster Recommendation: Bringing back a key ecosystem engineer by developing and supporting best practice in Europe" presents relevant recommendations for the implementation of restoration measures and provides a synthesis of current European projects.

4open is pleased to announce the new special issue “Advances in Researches of Quaternion Algebras”, guest edited by Dr. Ivan Kyrchei.

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.

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.
