We would like to thank all contributors for their advice, comments, support, testing, documentation and code.

Institutional support

The CNRS supports Episciences by funding two positions.


Inria supports the journals of the Episciences IAM (Informatics and Applied Mathematics) thematic community.


INRAE supports the technical development of the platform.


Institut Fourier
The Institut Fourier (UMR5582 CNRS and Université Joseph-Fourier), specialised in fundamental mathematics, supports the journals of Episciences Maths.



Episciences has received support from OpenAIRE and its services, notably for the integration of its service in the OpenAIRE Nexus project



Open repositories

As an overlay journal service, Episciences relies on third-party services for storage and APIs:


Founded by Paul Ginsparg in 1991 and now maintained and operated by Cornell Tech, arXiv® is a research sharing platform.


bioRxiv is a free online archive and distribution service for unpublished preprints in the life sciences.


A source of published and unpublished scientific documents from scientific research and higher education, HAL was created in 2001 on the model of arXiv by the physicist Franck Laloë.


medRxiv is a free online archive and distribution server for complete but unpublished manuscripts (preprints) in the medical, clinical, and related health sciences.


The OpenAIRE project, at the forefront of the open access and open data movements in Europe, was commissioned by the European Commission to support its emerging open data policy by providing a general repository for Commission-funded research. CERN, an OpenAIRE partner and pioneer in open source, open access and open data, provided this capability and Zenodo was launched in May 2013.
