Emergent Scientist

EDP Sciences announced the recent launch of Emergent Scientist, an innovative new open access journal that puts young scientists at its heart. The journal was born out of the 2016 International Physicists’ Tournament (IPT), and is supported by the French Physics Society and the French Academy of Science.

Emergent Scientist offers 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.

The first articles are available at https://emergent-scientist.edp-open.org and while Emergent Scientist is currently physics oriented, the intention is for the scope to be broadened to include subjects such as mathematics and the life sciences.
