EPL is published under the scientific policy and control of the European Physical Society by EDP Sciences, IOP Publishing and the Società Italiana di Fisica for a partnership of 17 European physical societies (the EPL Association).

EPL (formerly Europhysics Letters) is a physics letters journal published twice a month under the scientific responsibility of the European Physical Society. It aims at publishing 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, while the Production is handled jointly by the Società Italiana di Fisica, EDP Sciences and IOP Publishing. We have brought together our expertises to create a high-quality journal for the international scientific community.
