EPJ Techniques and Instrumentation – A new Open-Access Journal


The publishers are pleased to announce the publication of the first articles in the latest EPJ open-access journal – EPJ Techniques and Instrumentation.

EPJ Techniques and Instrumentation focuses on the design, implementation, and application of new techniques in all areas of the physical and applied sciences.

Of particular interest to the journal are advances produced by:

  • Laboratory-specific custom instrumentation and diagnostics
  • Innovative and clever experimental techniques
  • Subtle refinements to established experimental setups
  • Novel analytical methods

With the launch of EPJTI we hope to encourage the open access dissemination of detailed experimental design descriptions, experimental techniques and practices, and examples of results that arise from such experiments, that go beyond the scope of traditional scientific journal articles. The purpose of EPJTI is to catalyze the development and adoption of next-generation techniques and technologies.

EPJTI has a large international Editorial Board reflecting the broad coverage of the journal, led by a team of three Editors-in-Chief: Prof Stephen Buckman (Australian National University, Australia), Prof Peter Grütter (McGill University, Canada) and Prof Martin Hegner (Trinity College Dublin, Ireland).

The journal will feature regular Thematic Series to stimulate the publication of important papers in contemporary research areas - current series include Fundamentals of Nanomechanical Transduction and Raman Spectroscopies: Techniques and Applications. Of course, regular papers are also encouraged and we expect these to form the core of the journal.

We look forward to receiving your submissions to this new addition to the EPJ portfolio.

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.
