Europhysics Letters (EPL) is a reference journal founded in 1986 by the European Physical Society (EPS), the Société Française de Physique (SFP) and its subsidiary EDP Sciences, the Società Italiana di Fisica (SIF) and the Institute of Physics (IOP). The Board of Directors consists of five members, four of which represent the founder members of Category A (the EPS, SIF, SFP/EDP Sciences and IOP), and one of Category B (representing the other owner national societies). Herdeiro was nominated by the Portuguese Physics Society and voted by the board as the category B representative.
EPL is now published under the scientific policy and control of the EPS by EDP Sciences, IOP Publishing and SIF for a partnership of 17 European physical societies (the EPL Association).
The EPL Association is managed by a Board of Directors together with the Editor In Chief, Business Manager, Executive Editor and Staff Editor.
The refereeing procedure is handled by the Editorial Board and the Editorial Office (with the support of the Deputy Editors Board).
EPL is owned now by 17 National Physical Societies/Institutes represented by the Board of Directors.
