We are pleased to announce a new affiliation between 4open and the European Society of Computational Methods in Sciences and Engineering (ESCMSE). 4open is already supported by the Theodor-Billroth-Academy® and the International Consortium of Research Excellence ( INCORE) and published under the auspices of the Société Française de Physique (SFP) which will now be joined by ESCSME.

We are pleased to announce that EPJ Photovoltaics is now indexed in the Ei Compendex , joining over 3,600 high-quality peer-reviewed journals. These journals cover a vast number of areas, such as, materials science, applied physics and optics, and instrumentation and nanotechnology.

4open is delighted to announce that Professor Dr. Stéphane Petoud has accepted the position of Editor-in-Chief for Chemistry - Applied Chemistry. He joins three other Editors-in-Chief to complete 4open’s editorial board; namely Björn L.D.M. Brücher, Life Sciences – Medicine; Elias Brinks, Physics - Applied Physics and Theodore E. Simos, Mathematics - Applied Mathematics.

What can art bring to science? Historically, Japanese amateur painters have painted northern lights, and these “data” are useful for scientists to study past magnetic storms. The new Agora supplement of the Journal of Space Weather and Space Climate is the place for the space weather community to discuss, evaluate and distribute papers on historical space weather events and observations, and other non-traditional scientific output.

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.

Astronomy & Astrophysics has earned an increased Impact Factor of 6.209 in this year’s Journal Citation Reports® (JCR) – up 11.6% from 5.565 last year. Its impact factor has risen steadily over the past four years and the increase is a fitting achievement in its 50th anniversary year.
