EU PVSEC 2011 papers

Wiley teams up with the European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference for 2011

Wiley is proud to announce its publishing partnership with the European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference (EU PVSEC) for the second year running. Through the arrangement the top research papers from the event are published in Progress in Photovoltaics, the high impact, international journal for the latest research in photovoltaic technology, from original research, through to practical application.

The top papers from EU PVSEC are rigorously peer-reviewed and then fast-tracked through the publication process, ensuring that the full PV research paper is available as soon after the conference as possible. With the publishing partnership in place, EU PVSEC shows that it is THE meeting place for cutting edge researchers to exchange ideas and present the latest progress in solar cell development and manufacturing.
