European Physical journal developments
- In 2006, EPJ A and EPJ C open two new sections, "Reviews" and "Tools for Theory and Experiment", the latter being devoted to papers e.g. on instrumentation, simulation or statistics of immediate relevance to either experiment or theory. Together with the "Letters", "Regular Articles" and "Scientific Notes", EPJ A and EPJ C will thereby become fully integrated publishing platforms for all paper types of relevance to the nuclear and particle physics communities.
- Acta Physica Hungarica A - Heavy Ion Physics has decided to merge with EPJ A as of January 2007.
- Also merging into EPJ D as of January 2007 are the Czechoslovak Journal of Physics (CJoP) and Acta Physica Hungarica B
- Furthermore, a new journal EPJ Special Topics (EPJ ST) will start publication as of January 2007, as a relaunch of the Journal de Physique IV, presently published by the EPJ publishing partners EDP Sciences.
