EPJ B, D, and E extend the publication of topical reviews (colloquium papers)

Colloquia describe the development of new areas of research or the impact of new and promising experimental, theoretical or computational methods in the fields that are within the spectrum of topics covered by the journal. While not as extensive and complete as reviews in the usual sense, they are intended to suitably introduce new research directions and techniques in their early stages of development, and to a wider audience. There is no explicit constraint regarding the length of such manuscripts, although 20 printed pages would be the most usual length. All invited/submitted manuscripts will undergo the same refereeing procedure as all other contributions submitted to the journal. For accepted colloquium papers, authors will receive a honorarium of EUR 200,-- and colour figures will be free of charge. For more details on this new section in EPJD see the Editorial written by the Editors-in-Chief Claude Fabre and Franco A. Gianturco.

EPJ B appoints new Editors-in-Chief

The publishers of The European Physical Journal B - Condensed Matter and Complex Systems are pleased to announce the appointment of Prof. Alois Loidl (U of Augsburg) and Prof. Luciano Colombo (U of Cagliari) as new Editors-in-Chief for experimental resp. theoretical condensed matter physics. At this occasion, EPJ B opens a new main section on computational methods which will publish papers on the theoretical development and numerical benchmarking of existing and new tools in scientific computing of relevance for computational solid state and materials physics. In particular, ab initio techniques, atomistic simulations, quantum monte carlo, and multiscale modelling will be in the new focus.

EPJ B extends its existing publishing activities

The publishing consortium of The European Physical Journal (EPJ) and the Editors-in-Chief are pleased to announce that The European Physical Journal B - Condensed Matter and Complex Systems has substantially extended its existing publishing activities in the fields of Statistical Physics and Nonlinear Dynamics to encompass all aspects of the emerging field of Complex Systems.
