Aims and scope

EPJ Photovoltaics is an Open Access journal which publishes original, peer-reviewed papers focused in the field of photovoltaic solar energy conversion. Authors in the field of crystalline, polycrystalline, thin film (silicon, CIGS, organic) and third generation PV are called to submit their research letters and regular articles for a fast publication and broad audience (open access). The journal will also promote interaction with research topics related to high efficiency cells such as materials and structures for optical trapping, third generation concepts. Moreover, we aim to establish solid links with the research activities in the field of modules, systems and PV deployment.

EPJ Photovoltaics promotes and supports papers and special issues that contribute to the achievement of the UN's sustainable development goals, in particular SDG 7 (Affordable and clean energy) and SDG 13 (Climate Action).
