EDP Sciences Creates Journal for Young Scientists

EDP Sciences introduced Emergent Scientist, an OA, peer-reviewed journal for science students that is supported by the French Physics Society and the French Academy of Science. It gives “young scientists at the beginning of their careers … the opportunity to discover peer-reviewed publishing and the publication process. The journal will especially serve those junior scientists who may not pursue a career in research, but become engineers, analysts, consultants or the like—as they will rarely get the opportunity to experience the peer review process once they have left their academic studies,” according to the press release. Its current focus is on physics, but its scope will broaden to include other disciplines, including mathematics and the life sciences.

“We believe that by writing, reading, and reviewing articles, students can understand better how scientific knowledge is actually produced in our societies,” says Daniel Suchet, Emergent Scientist’s editor-in-chief. To that end, the press release notes, the journal expects authors to show “exemplary scientific rigour and clarity in the way they tackle a problem and report their findings.”
