Physical Review Research Opens for Submissions: Article Processing Charges Waived for 2019

June 13, 2019

Physical Review Research (PRResearch), the new multidisciplinary open-access journal published by APS, is now open for submissions.

To allow all authors an opportunity to experience this exciting new offering, APS is waiving open access article-processing charges (APCs) for all articles received in calendar year 2019 and subsequently published in the journal.
PRResearch welcomes original research papers from the full spectrum of topics of interest to the physics community, including interdisciplinary and newly emerging fields. Read the full scope statement.

“As a multidisciplinary, international, fully open access journal, PRResearch offers authors and readers the familiar Physical Review experience and quality they value and trust,” said APS Associate Publisher Jeff Lewandowski.

The acceptance criteria are aligned with those of other established titles in the Physical Review family, such as PRA, PRB, PRC, PRD, PRE, PRApplied, PRFluids, and PRMaterials.

“The open access publishing model supports the aim of the journal, to broadly disseminate high-quality research from all areas of physics, the physical sciences, and interdisciplinary areas to a global audience,” Lewandowski said. “We are confident that the journal will  initiate conversations across traditional boundaries, facilitate new collaborations, and potentially drive future scientific advances.”
