EPL publishes original, high-quality Letters in all areas of physics, ranging from condensed matter topics and interdisciplinary research to astrophysics, geophysics, plasma and fusion sciences, including those with application potential. The Journal was founded in 1986 by the European Physical Society (EPS), the Société Française de Physique (SFP) and its subsidiary EDP Sciences, the Società Italiana di Fisica (SIF) and the Institute of Physics (IOP). It is published by EPS, EDP Sciences, IOP Publishing and SIF for a partnership of 17 European physical societies (the EPL Association). EPL is now available in more than 2000 institutions world-wide.
Nominations are now open for the Editor in Chief of EPL, a leading, global letters journal owned and published by a consortium of 17 physical societies in Europe. The Editor in Chief (EiC) needs to be a recognized authority and leading researcher in a field of physics, and have a broad knowledge and interest in physics and its frontiers. The EiC will need to demonstrate strong commitment and leadership to further develop EPL as a top-ranking journal. Experience with the editorial process for a physics journal is also desirable. The EiC is central to enhancing EPL’s position as a leading global physics letters journal. The term of office of EPL Editor in Chief is three and a half years beginning in July 2017. A job description is available at www.epletters.net.
Nominations must include a CV, publication list and a brief covering letter describing the qualifications and the interest of the individual in the position of EPL Editor in Chief. Nominations should be sent to the EPL Editorial Office no later than 15 January 2017 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
