Scientific Advisory Committee

Since January 2000, a Scientific Advisory Committee, has been established with the aim to advise both the publishers and the Editors-in-Chief of the respective sections of The European Physical Journal about editorial policy matters and aims & scope. The overall purpose is to offer the physics community - in Europe and throughout the world - a unified and high-quality forum to further development of international collaborations and the world-wide dissemination of physical sciences.

The Scientific Advisory Committee meets once a year and is chaired by one of the representatives. Currently they are: Chairperson 2021: Martina Knoop; Past Chairperson: Jef Ongena; Chairperson Elect: Roberta Caruso

The original chart of the Scientific Advisory Committee can be found here. The current chart has been approved at the SAC meeting in 2011 and further updated in 2016 and 2020.
