PRESS RELEASE

EDP Sciences announces the launch of EDP Open

Paris, France, February 4th 2014 - EDP Sciences, a learned-society owned
publisher - has announced the launch of EDP Open - a new Open Access
imprint.

EDP Sciences has almost a century's experience of publishing high quality,
international journals, magazines, books and websites. Today, EDP partners
with prestigious societies, publishers and prominent academics.

Open Access represents a significant shift in the journals publishing
landscape, creating both opportunities and threats for societies and other
specialist publishers. EDP Sciences has extensive experience of both
converting subscription journals to Open Access, and launching Open Access
titles. EDP Open becomes their new platform for Gold Open Access publishing=
.


"We have an active Open Access programme," said Jean-Marc Quilb=E9, 
Preside=
nt
of EDP Sciences.  "We've worked with a range of societies and publishers 
to
advise them on their best response to Open Access trends and policies. For
some of our partners, this has been to convert their journal to full Open
Access; for others, a hybrid approach has been more appropriate.
Increasingly now we're being asked to support the launch of new Gold Open
Access journals, and EDP Open is our response to this."

EDP Open provides access to more than 70,000 Open Access scientific
articles from across all EDP Sciences' journals and also hundreds of
conference proceedings. EDP Open has also launched two new Gold Open Access
journals: *Manufacturing Review* - a forum for presenting the latest advanc=
es,
developments and applications of manufacturing engineering, technology and
applied sciences; and also *EPJ Applied Metamaterials* - a platform for
multidisciplinary researchers to exchange information on metamaterials with
a focus on high impact engineering applications.

"At EDP we believe Open Access holds many opportunities for society
publishers," continued Quilb=E9. "Of course, we're aware that the 
threat to
established income sources need managing too. We don't dictate a specific
approach, but we do feel it's important for societies to explore their
options and begin to integrate Open Access into their activities. We help
them do just that. There can be little doubt that Open Access is here to
stay."
