Cooperation with Publishing Journals

We are proud to announce a collaboration with the three journals.

Progress in Photovoltaics

In 2024, Progress in Photovoltaics proudly partners with the EU PVSEC. Through the partnership, selected research papers from the event will be published in Progress in Photovoltaics, the high impact, renowned international journal, that offers a forum for reporting advances in this rapidly developing technology, aiming to reach all interested professionals, researchers and energy policy-makers.

Solar RRL

This high-quality journal publishes original Research Articles (formerly known as Rapid Research Letters), Reviews, and Perspectives related to all aspects of solar energy conversion, especially photovoltaics and solar cells.

  • Hybrid Open Access (OA)/subscription journal
  • Publication as subscription articles with Wiley-VCH Copyright Transfer Agreement (free of charge) and green OA (self-archiving) option
  • Open Access publication option: For many authors in Europe and other world regions via one of Wiley’s transformative OA agreements (e.g. with Projekt DEAL in Germany), or via institutional/funder payments

EPJ Photovoltaics (EDP Sciences)

This Open Access Journal publishes original, peer-reviewed papers focused in the field of photovoltaic solar energy conversion. It is a fast, growing journal with very low publication fees.

  • Impact factor 2.5
  • Open Access all electronic journal
  • APC (Article Publication Charges) per published article are reduced to 300€ (instead of 500€) as part of the agreement with EU PVSEC.

Advanced Energy and Sustainability Research (AESR)

Due to the specific nature of submissions in topic 5 “PV in the Energy Transition”, dealing with subjects like Sustainability, Scenarios for Renewables, Markets & Economics, or Societal and Global Challenges, the EU PVSEC presents, new this year, the partnership with “Advanced Energy and Sustainability Research”. It is the Open Access journal of choice for researchers and industry specialists from all areas of energy and sustainability science. It publishes original Research Articles, Reviews, and Perspectives.

  • Open Access publication: For many authors in Europe and other world regions via one of Wiley’s transformative OA agreements (e.g. with Projekt DEAL in Germany) comprising fully gold OA journals, or via institutional/funder payments
  • Supports funder or institutional mandates for gold OA journal publication
  • Indexed among others in Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), INSPEC (IET), CAS: Chemical Abstracts Service (ACS) and Web of Science (Clarivate Analytics)

The EU PVSEC 2024 Scientific Committee will select a number of abstracts that will be invited to be peer reviewed for potential publication by the above mentioned journals. This publication will be in addition to the publication in the Conference Proceedings of the EU PVSEC 2024, so selected authors submit papers both to the journal and to the EU PVSEC which must be substantially different.

If you would like your abstract to be considered for inclusion in the Journal Publication/Peer Review Process, please select the corresponding fields in the User Area during submission. Please note that if selected, a full paper will need to be supplied well in advance of the conference. Kindly also note that only abstracts with a minimum of 3-4 pages are eligible.

The procedure is currently scheduled as follows:

  • 2 February 2024:
    Deadline for Submission of abstracts to the EU PVSEC 2024.
  • End-April 2024:
    Notification of acceptance and invitation to the Peer Review Process/Journal publication.
  • 30 June 2024:
    Deadline for Submission of the Final Paper to the journal of your choice for Peer Review

    Target Date for Final Approved Manuscripts accepted online

Publication of papers in the Conference Proceedings and in the journals is scheduled soon after the EU PVSEC 2024.
