Earth, Planets and Space (EPS) is an academic journal published by the following five societies; The Society of Geomagnetism and Earth, Planetary and Space Sciences, The Seismological Society of Japan, The Volcanological Society of Japan, The Geodetic Society of Japan, and The Japanese Society for Planetary Sciences. The publication of EPS started in 1998 as continuations of Journal of Geomagnetism and Geoelectricity and Journal of Physics of the Earth. With the 5-year support from JSPS, EPS started open access publication from January 2014. The number of submitted papers in 2015 was 366, which is doubled from 2012, because of the increased visibility of the journal and the varieties of promotional activities. The average time from the submission to the publication was 5.2 months in 2015. We also had promoted successful 15 special issues (thematic series). We plan to promote submission of letter categories and aim to have quick publications. We also enhance collaboration with JPGU in the future.
