EPJ C appoints new theory Editor-in-Chief

Prof. Georg Weiglein (University of Durham, UK) has been appointed the new Editor-in-Chief for theoretical particle and high-energy physics of The European Physical Journal (EPJ) C. He leads the journal into the hot phase of LHC physics and works together with Prof. Siegfried Bethke (MPI Munich, Germany), Editor-in-Chief for experimental physics. Georg Weiglein succeeds Jochen Bartels (University of Hamburg, Germany), who had been the journal's theory Editor-in-Chief since 1999. Jochen Bartels and Dieter Haidt (DESY, Hamburg) together successfully shaped the profile of EPJC, after the merger of the famous journals Zeitschrift für Physik C and Il Nuovo Cimento A, back in 1998.

EPJ C extends OA publishing scheme

In anticipation of successful negotiations with interested Open Access funding agencies, as of today and until such negotiations have taken place before or by the end of 2008, all experimental papers submitted to and accepted by The European Physical Journal C - Particles and Fields will be published with full, online open access without any fees being incurred by the authors.
