Physical Review Research

APS has announced the newest title in its portfolio of peer-reviewed journals—Physical Review Research (PRResearch). The publication will be fully open access and cover the whole spectrum of research topics of interest to the physics community, including interdisciplinary and newly emerging areas.

It is planning to open for submissions and announce APC pricing later this spring, and will be publishing its first papers in the second half of the year.

Physical Review Research will aim to advance and disseminate scientific research and discovery, promote physics, and serve the broader physics community.

Physical Review Research offers the Physical Review refereeing and publishing experience, along with a fully open access publishing model for authors who prefer that option or require it to fulfill funder mandates. Acceptance criteria for this new journal will be similar to those of Physical Review A-E, and like those established titles Physical Review Research will publish quality papers that advance a particular field of research.
