EDP Sciences initiate “Pay What You Want” for article processing charges of Open Access Journal
- Published on 11 January 2016
EDP Sciences are one of the first publishers to initiate the “Pay What You Want” (PWYW) model for article processing charges (APCs) of Open Access Journals, where authors choose to pay their own fair price to publish their research.
SICOT-J, and a multidisciplinary journal covering the fields of surgery and engineering (to be announced and launched at the beginning of 2016) will use this model for APC payments from 1 January 2016. We will also introduce PWYW for other journals during the year.
All articles will still undergo rigorous peer-review, and receive the same exposure as any other article published by EDP Sciences, and importantly will be compliant with the mandates of agencies funding research and open access publication.

EDP Sciences and SICOT announce the launch of a new Open Access journal in orthopaedics: SICOT-J
- Published on 12 December 2014
EDP Sciences and SICOT (International Society of Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology) are pleased to announce the launch of a new open access journal, SICOT-J. The journal will be part of the EDP Open portfolio and will cover the entire field of orthopaedics and traumatology.
SICOT-J will place a high priority on rapid publication and seeks to publish a broad range of research study types including original clinical, basic and translational research. In addition, the journal will publish editorials, review articles, surgical technique papers, and case reports as well as the latest congress proceedings and letters to the editors.
“We are extremely pleased to partner with EDP Sciences to offer a journal that will be at the forefront of many of the exciting developments within orthopaedics and traumatology’ said Prof. Jochen Eulert, SICOT Secretary General. ‘By offering an open access journal in addition to the society’s successful International Orthopaedics Journal, SICOT is further strengthening its key mission to promote the advancement of the science and art of orthopaedics and traumatology at an international level.”
Professor Hatem Said, of Assiut University, Egypt and Professor Jacques Caton, of Clinique Orthopedique Emilie de Vialar, Lyon, France, are co-Editors of the new journal working with a global team of associate and section editors to manage the journal and its peer review process. ‘The drive for openness in surgery at present provides both exciting opportunities and significant challenges for clinical research’, said Professor Caton, ‘One of the reasons I am so pleased to be editing this new open access journal will be the broadening of access to the developments in the orthopaedics and traumatology field to researchers and clinicians with limited access to subscription journals.’
“At EDP we have a commitment to Open Access and supporting our society partners in this arena”, said Jean-Marc Quilbé, President of EDP Sciences. “We are delighted to be partnering with SICOT on the launch of this new open access journal, to expand their international reach and coverage. Working with a highly regarded editorial board, we look forward to developing a longstanding and influential relationship as the scope and research of the journal continues to expand”.
SICOT-J will publish articles under a CC-BY license, enabling authors to be fully compliant with open access requirements of funding organizations where they apply. Authors are now invited to submit their manuscripts and during the first year of publication article processing charges will be waived. The website is now live at www.sicot-j.org.
