Usually the cost of our peer review, editorial and publishing services are covered by an Article Processing Charge (APC), but for all articles accepted for publication before 31st March 2014, this will be completely free of charge to publish in EPJ Photovoltaics .

All the journals published by EDP Open are peer reviewed with the best practices and ethical principles. EDP offers flexibility in the peer-review process. We use up-to-date software like Manuscript Management System, which may be managed by the editors of the journal itself or by a professional team from EDP Open in coordination with the editors. EDP uses the code of practices defined by COPE. EDP will investigate seriously any ethical problems experienced by authors.

New EPJ portal (November 2012)

EPJ portal

EDP Sciences is pleased to present the new EPJ portal aggregating the latest editorial and scientific news from all of the "European Physical Journal" sections and the archives of predecessor journals.

The homepage presents the latest news and an overview of all the sections.

Articles are available either directly from the search engine, or within each section page from tabbed articles lists: most recent articles, most downloaded articles, all issues, and virtual issues gathering articles by topics or focus points.

For some journals (i.e. EPJE) tables of contents and article abstracts include a graphical abstract illustrating the article.

Access to the full text articles is provided by the publishers of the sections on their own publishing platforms.

Last but not least, a new search tool, including predecessor journals as archives, has been set up allowing facet search on the whole EPJ corpus.

Technically, this portal is hosted on the web-based publishing platform Vision4Press of EDP Sciences.
