Join Episciences

Which journals are eligibles for the platform?

The following can become overlay journals on Episciences:

  • Existing journals wishing to free themselves from a commercial editorial environment or already in Open Access to gain autonomy;
  • Journals in the process of being created that want an environment that favours a simple, flexible and highly visible deployment.

To be published in an overlay journal, an article must be accessible in Open Access before the evaluation process. Authors must have previously deposited their full text on a public open repository.

If the journal’s objectives fall within the scientific scope of an already established epi-committee, it is advisable to contact the epi-committee before submitting an application. Otherwise, please contact
