At Academia Europaea’s Annual Conference, Dr Alban Kellerbauer, Editor-in-Chief at European Review, gave his annual report on achievements over the past year and changes for the future.
In 2022, six regular issues and one supplementary issue of the European Review were published, with a total of 63 articles and 1036 pages.
Founded in 1993 by the then President of Academia Europaea, Sir Arnold Burgen, the journal celebrated its 30th anniversary this year. To mark the occasion, a special event was organised by the AE Cardiff Hub, at Wolfson College, University of Cambridge, on 3rd July. The programme was created with the theme Science and scholarship in a changing Europe and featured distinguished speakers and panellists, including Lord Martin Rees and Professor Donald Dingwell, Vice-President of AE.
Dr Kellerbauer has announced that the European Review will transition to full gold Open Access in 2025. From then on, the journal will be free to read for everyone worldwide, but authors will be expected to pay an article processing charge (APC). Transformative agreements and initiatives such as Research4Life will cover the APCs for most authors, but Cambridge University Press have committed to waiving the APCs for all authors who cannot afford to pay them.
The Editor-in-Chief reminded AE members that the European Review is open to submissions from the membership and encouraged Members to consider the journal as an outlet for their excellent research results.
