EPJ E - Andreas Bausch, the new biological physics EiC


This month EPJE welcomes Andreas Bausch, who takes over from Frank Jülicher, as Editor in Chief for biological physics in EPJ E – Soft Matter and Biological Physics. In his lab, Bausch applies new experimental tools of soft condensed matter physics to living cells and bio-mimetic model systems. This is his vision for biological physics within EPJE in the years to come:

“The physics of biological systems is important to develop new concepts to address the complexity of the living world. EPJE has a clear focus on the development of new physical insights – something a lot of biologically oriented journals increasingly neglect. I am absolutely convinced that it is the concept development which ultimately will guide the way for new discoveries in life science. This is only possible by combining theory and experimental approaches, and we will continue to cover both in the journal. It is fascinating to see how concepts from soft matter physics have advanced our understanding of biology. The major contributions given by soft matter scientists in recent years are becoming increasingly endorsed by biologists. At the same time biology is a major source of inspiration for soft matter.

EPJE is a journal where scientists run the journal for the scientists. We will continue to aim for the highest quality in scientific papers, starting from excellence in the peer-review all the way to a most careful production process. This is a major advantage compared to most other journals. Here we purely concentrate on the scientific content and the scientific progress achieved.”

This was our first experience of publishing with EPJ Web of Conferences. We contacted the publisher in the middle of September, just one month prior to the Conference, but everything went through smoothly. We have had published MNPS Proceedings with different publishers in the past, and would like to tell that the EPJ Web of Conferences team was probably the best, very quick, helpful and interactive. Typically, we were getting responses from EPJ Web of Conferences team within less than an hour and have had help at every production stage.
We are very thankful to Solange Guenot, Web of Conferences Publishing Editor, and Isabelle Houlbert, Web of Conferences Production Editor, for their support. These ladies are top-level professionals, who made a great contribution to the success of this issue. We are fully satisfied with the publication of the Conference Proceedings and are looking forward to further cooperation. The publication was very fast, easy and of high quality. My colleagues and I strongly recommend EPJ Web of Conferences to anyone, who is interested in quick high-quality publication of conference proceedings.
