DOAJ Seal awarded to EPJ Photovoltaics demonstrating “best practice in open access publishing”

We are pleased to announce that EPJ Photovoltaics, among 22 other EDP Sciences’ journals, has recently been awarded the DOAJ Seal which “is awarded to journals that demonstrate best practice in open access publishing”. Only around 10% of journals indexed in the DOAJ are awarded the DOAJ Seal, so it is a gratifying mark of recognition of the excellent work EPJ Photovoltaics is doing.

EPJ Photovoltaics now indexed in Ei Compendex

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.

“Ei Compendex is the broadest and most complete engineering literature database available in the world. It provides a truly holistic and global view of peer-reviewed and indexed publications with over 20 million records from 77 countries across 190 engineering disciplines.” ( Ei Compendex) Ei Compendex therefore provides reliable, high-quality information to engineering students and professionals.

“A new journal indexation is always something to be celebrated” commented Ariana Fuga, Senior Publishing Editor. “We are very proud that the hard work of our editors, reviewers, and authors is getting the recognition it deserves.”

EPJ Photovoltaics is an open access journal which publishes original, peer-reviewed papers focused in the field of photovoltaic solar energy conversion. It is a key journal in EDP Sciences’ portfolio of Materials Science, Engineering and Technology journals.

Daniel Lincot, Co-Editor-in-Chief of EPJ Photovoltaics, awarded top honour by the Académie des sciences

It is with great pleasure that we are able to share news of a recent award to Daniel Lincot, Director of Research at the CNRS, Institut Photovoltaïque d'Ile de France (IPVF) and Co-Editor-in-Chief of EPJ Photovoltaics. The prestigious ‘Prix Ivan Peychès’ has been given annually since 1979 to "reward work relating to applications in the study of non-metallic materials, particularly vitreous materials or solar energy or, failing that, in the field of applied sciences".


EPJ Photovoltaics is now indexed by Scopus

EPJ Photovoltaics – EDP Sciences’ Open Access journal is now indexed by Scopus.

Scopus is widely recognised as one of the most comprehensive abstract and citation databases of peer reviewed literature: scientific journals, books and conference proceedings. Delivering a comprehensive overview of the world’s research output in the fields of science, technology, medicine, social sciences, and humanities.

Commenting on the news, Ariana Fuga, Senior Publishing Editor at EDP Sciences, said “A new journal indexation is always cause for celebration amongst our editorial team. It shows that the hard work of every contributor – from editors, to reviewers, and authors themselves – is being recognised and that the Journal is seen as an authoritative voice in the discipline, and will be more widely discoverable as a result.”
