EDP Sciences (Édition Diffusion Presse Sciences) is an STM publisher that specialises scientific information for specialist and more general audiences (general public, decision-makers, teachers, etc.). EDP produces and publishes international journals, books, conferences, and websites with predominantly scientific and technical content. The company is a joint venture of four French learned societies in science, mathematics, and medicine.

The company was founded in 1920 under the name La Société du Journal de Physique et Le Radium. It thus took over the publication of the Journal de Physique (established in 1872) on the occasion of its merger with the journal Le Radium (established in 1904). Among the founders were the Société Française de Physique and several notable scientists and industrialists: Antoine Béclère, Louis de Broglie, Marie Curie, Paul Langevin, Louis Lumière, Jean Perrin, and Léon Brillouin, as well as patrons such as Albert I, Prince of Monaco.
The company continued to publish the different sections of the Journal de Physique until the 1980s, at which point its journal publishing expanded into other areas of physics, particularly astrophysics. The company also began publishing books.
In 1997, the publisher broadened further to reach other scientific markets, and changed its name to Édition Diffusion Presse Sciences (more commonly shortened to EDP Sciences, including in the company's own marketing materials).
EDP Sciences today publishes almost 50 international paper and electronic journals and magazines, as well as about a hundred websites and a variety of annual and monograph books. The publisher is jointly owned by four learned societies: the Société Française de Physique, the Société Chimique de France, the Société de Mathématiques Appliquées et Industrielles, and the Société Française d'Optique. EDP maintains partnerships with other European publishers, including Cambridge University Press and Springer. The company claims to be considered the first independent French publisher of international academic journals.
The company has become a publishing group of several entities:
Main category: EDP Sciences academic journals
Across its divisions, EDP Science publishes in the following subject areas: chemistry; general knowledge; mathematics and computer science; health sciences and dentistry; physics, astronomy, and astrophysics; engineering and technology; social sciences and humanities; life sciences.
The company publishes more than 50 scientific journals, both paper and electronic, and also a number of professional magazines (mostly French-language) in the physics domain (Photoniques, Europhysics News, and others) and in health sciences (Audio Infos, Basse Vision Infos, L'Entreprise officinale, Orthophile, Indépendentaire, etc.).
EDP Science manages the annual publishing of several undergraduate teaching texts, other professional books, and popular-science books, and also publishes monographs at masters-degree level and higher.
