Aims and Scope

EPJ Web of Conferences is an open-access journal dedicated to archiving conference proceedings in physics and related sciences. The fields of publication are those covered by the aims and scope of the EPJ journals (the publishers reserve the right to reject proposals that they consider not fitting on these grounds).

EPJ Web of Conferences aims to increase the visibility and enhance the profile of the scientific events, as well as to highlight the work of the contributors. It provides a safe long-term open-access record of the conferences in order to make the proceedings citable and widely usable by the scientific community. Its services are fast, affordable and suitable to large international conferences as well as small workshops and meetings.

Benefits are:

  • Free online access
  • Swift publication times
  • Immediate citability by DOI
  • High visibility
  • Total flexibility in size and format of the contributions
  • Range of additional publishing options

Proceedings are published under the scientific responsibility of the conference organizers.

In the last years, I contributed to organize different scientific events with the University of Messina and the Bonino-Puleio foundation and with the support of the INFN. In the most of cases, we decided to publish the proceedings in the EPJ Web of Conferences. The main reasons of this choice are: the cost of the publication is very competitive with respect the other publisher (important to justify the expense with the own administration), the quality of the services are excellent from different points of view: the publishing editor and Collaborators are kind to furnish very soon all information and to process all requests, they are able to publish the proceedings in very short time and with high quality. The journal provides also citation indexing via ISI Web of Knowledge and Scopus, very important for the visibility of the articles and the authors.
