EPJ A – Validating Aspects of the Strong-Coupling Regime of QCD

A key to our understanding of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) in the strong regime is our ability to reproduce the hadronic excitation spectrum. Up to now, and due to their limited predictive power, quark models forecast of this spectrum at high excitation energies is unsatisfactory and is dubbed ``the missing resonances problem”. To explore the high excitation energies in the hadron spectrum production or scattering of heavier mesons from a nucleon target is essential.

EPJ A broadens its scope in heavy ion physics

EPJ A broadens its scope in heavy ion physics by merging with the Acta Physica Hungarica A - Heavy Ion Physics (APH A) as of January 1st, 2007. APH A, a well respected journal in the field has emerged from the Acta Physics Hungarica, initially covering all areas of physics, in the 1990s.

In 2012 we organized the International Conference on Nuclear Structure and Related Topics (NSRT12). Among several offers for publishing the Proceedings we have chosen the open-access journal EPJ Web of Conferences and have not been disappointed. Since this was our first experience with the on-line publication we had many questions to the editorial staff and several times changed our mind. And always we got prompt, exhaustive and patient answers and instructions. We were fully satisfied with the final quality of publication when it has appeared on the website. So our experience in collaboration with the journal is encouraging without any doubts.
