Long life to "the European Physical Journal"
We are happy to introduce you the first of the twelve issues of "The European Physical Journal D". The title differs slightly from the one previously announced because for a number of our colleagues this new name corresponds more closely to the journal's purpose. The aim of this European initiative, the outcome of the merging of two well-known and more than centennial publications namely, Journal de Physique and Zeitschrift für Physik, is to make itself attractive to a large part of the European physics community, as well as to researchers world-wide. This journal covers a vast field of both theoretical and experimental atomic, molecular and optical physics. It is represented in a large number of countries thanks to the team of Associate Editors working in close cooperation with the central editorial office in order to ensure fast and high quality production.
