EPL, in a few words...
EPL is published twice a
month under the scientific responsibility of the European Physical
Society. It aims to publish short papers containing new results, ideas,
concepts, experimental methods and theoretical treatments.
EPL results from a truly international collaboration: the refereeing procedure is handled by the Editorial Office which stands by the European Physical Society (www.eps.org) while the Production is handled jointly by the Società Italiana di Fisica (www.sif.it), EDP Sciences (www.edpsciences.org) and IOP Publishing (www.iop.org). We have brought together our expertise to create a high-quality journal for the international scientific community.
Exploring the frontiers of physics
Our vision is for EPL to become a leading home for global physics letters, to offer rapid publication of ground-breaking physics results from the international community, and to provide the broadest coverage of physics research.
EPL is available on-line from the EDP Sciences website AND on www.epljournal.org. This new website will feature the latest published issues, all articles published since 1996 and journal news.

EPL template now has line numbering!
In order to improve our services, we updated the EPL LaTeX template. From now on, line numbers can be displayed in your manuscript. This option not only enables the reviewers and the coeditors to give you more specific instructions, but you will also be able to spot out the points that can be improved more easily. In other words, the line numbers may contribute to a faster handling of your manuscript. We encourage you to use it the next time you submit a manuscript to EPL.
