EPL is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published by EDP Sciences, IOP Publishing and the Italian Physical Society on behalf of the European Physical Society and 17 other European physical societies. Prior to 1 January 2007 it was known as Europhysics Letters.
EPL publishes original letters that communicates new results and findings that merit rapid publication in all areas of physics. EPL also publishes comments on letters previously published in the journal.
Europhysics Letters was founded in 1986 by the European Physical Society (EPS), Société Française de Physique (SFP) and its subsidiary EDP Sciences, the Società Italiana di Fisica (SIF) and the Institute of Physics (IOP). The new journal incorporated Lettere al Nuovo Cimento and Journal de Physique: Lettres and was published by EPS, EDP Sciences and SIF until 2006.
