The EPiC Series: EasyChair Proceedings and Collections

The EPiC series provide fast and flexible publication of proceedings and collections in various areas of science. We publish online but can also print hardcopies on demand. EPiC is integrated with the EasyChair conference management part, thus providing a seamless process of submission-to-publication of reviewed content. All material is formatted using the EasyChair LaTeX class file or EasyChair Word style, to ensure a consistent easy to read presentation.

The first volume of the EPiC Series in Health Sciences appeared online

It contains the proceedings of the 17th Annual Meeting of the International Society for Computer Assisted Orthopaedic Surgery

In addition to publishing the volume, we implemented a new feature integrating links to published articles from the conference program, see the CAOS 2017 smart program page. In addition, to make papers available from program pages as early as possible, we implemented a concept of an open volume, in which each paper is publlished immediately when it is ready.

All You Have to Know About the EPiC Series

EasyChair is committed to open access publishing. We created EPiC with the aim of creating a model of affordable high-quality open access publishing:

  • To make it affordable we cut costs by using the EasyChair environment to produce volumes using a high level of automation, thus saving time to the authors and the editors.
  • To achieve high quality content we use the EasyChair data about conference reviewing. Further, we create and maintain convenient and nice looking templates for published volumes and papers. We assemble strong editorial boards to help us to make decisions.
  • Our publications are truly open access. As soon as a volume is ready, it is published and the articles are accessible to everybody at no cost.
  • We are staying to date with innovations in publishing and creating new technologies. We are committed to indexing, the use of open data and semantic technologies.
  • All articles will also be offered for other relevant major indexes depending on their areas, for example Scopus, Engineering Village (Compendex), Microsoft Academic Search and PubMed.
  • The copyright of each EPiC article is owned by its authors.
  • The Epic Series is fully integrated with the EasyChair smart program feature for generating and publishing conference programs. Your program will have links to the volume and talks in the program will have links to corresponding published papers. Also, the published volume and papers will have links to the conference program, thus providing a better visibility and information quality both for your conference Web pages and the papers.
