The European Physical Journal (or EPJ) is a joint publication of EDP Sciences, Springer Science+Business Media, and the Società Italiana di Fisica. It arose in 1998 as a merger and continuation of Acta Physica Hungarica, Anales de Física, Czechoslovak Journal of Physics, Il Nuovo Cimento, Journal de Physique, Portugaliae Physica and Zeitschrift für Physik. The journal is published in various sections, covering all areas of physics.


From the time of its creation in 1845, the Physical Society of Berlin (Physikalische Gesellschaft zu Berlin) published Fortschritte der Physik and Verhandlungen, but by 1919, the Verhandlungen had become too voluminous, so a committee consisting of Albert Einstein, Eugen Goldstein, Fritz Haber, E. Jahnke, Karl Scheel, and Wilhelm Westphal was formed. The committee recommended that a new journal, the Zeitschrift für Physik, should be established for original research articles. It began publication the following year. In 1975, Zeitschrift für Physik was merged with Physics of Condensed Matter (ISSN 0340-2347). Zeitschrift für Physik was published as a four-part journal from 1920 until 1997 by Springer–Verlag under the auspices of the Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft. During the early 20th century, it was considered one of the most prestigious journals in physics, with its golden years coinciding with the golden years of quantum mechanics.[1]

In the late 1990s, Springer and EDP Sciences decided to merge Zeitschrift für Physik and Journal de Physique. With the addition of Il Nuovo Cimento from the Societa Italiana di Fisica, the European Physical Journal commenced publication in January 1998. Now EPJ is a merger and continuation of Acta Physica Hungarica, Anales de Fisica, Czechoslovak Journal of Physics, Il Nuovo Cimento, Journal de Physique, Portugaliae Physica and Zeitschrift für Physik.

The short-lived open-access journal family PhysMath Central was merged in 2011 into the European Physical Journal,[2] which has offered an open-access option since 2006.[3]
