(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 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).
The company has become a publishing group of several entities:
- EDP Sciences proper, the publishing branch for scientific material
- EDP Santé, the medical branch of the company
- EDP Open, the platform for open-access 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.
