Starting from January 2020, important changes will occur in the journal of the European Acoustics Association (EAA):our journal will become a full Open Access Journal.
Thus our Journal will have an increased citation and usage, a greater public engagement, faster impact, wider collaboration.
Thus, for the benefit of its 9000 members, the EAA will be in full accordance with the plan S (https://www.coalition-s.org/) established by 16 European Funding Agencies (incl. the EC) and imposing the publication of research results in full open access journals, starting in January 2021.
To fulfil this important objective, additional changes have been necessary, namely going back to the original title of the journal (ACTA ACUSTICA®) and moving to EDP Science, actually the former publisher in 1993-95.The press release is available at the following link: https://www.edpsciences.org/en/news-highlights/1830-open-access-acous
The main changerelated to Open Acces is that the cost of publication is transferred from the journal subscribers to the authors of articles.
Being aware of this, the EAA has set up a support scheme,based on the solidarity principle among the National Societies.The scheme providesto the EAA member authors financial support to pay the required Article Processing Charge (APC) as detailed hereafter.
ACTA ACUSTICA®, with its reknown reputation since 1993, will be the suitable on-line platform for all acousticians to disseminate their work worldwide.
