Journal of Physics Communications cover

Introducing Journal of Physics Communications

We are pleased to announce the launch of Journal of Physics Communications™, a new multidisciplinary open access journal from IOP Publishing, offering an accelerated and innovative way to publish your research.

Journal of Physics Communications welcomes the submission of papers from all areas of research relating to physics. We’re particularly interested in interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary studies that may not fit the narrower scope of traditional journals, and all authors will find a peer review process that is fast, inclusive and transparent. The journal is now open for submissions.

Visit the journal homepage to find out more.
