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 Quilbé,
President 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 advances, 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 Quilbé. "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."
