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.
