APS Issues Call for Papers for Physical Review X
American Physical Society Editorial Office Announcement
RIDGE, NY – The doors are open for submissions to Physical Review X (PRX), the new online, open access research journal from APS covering all fields of physics. Authors and research institutions worldwide are invited to be a part of this new venture.
As broad in scope as physics itself, PRX is committed to publishing excellent, original research in pure, applied, and interdisciplinary fields, which will be valued by a global readership. PRX will provide validation through prompt and rigorous peer review, and an open access venue within the Physical Review family of publications. The first issue of PRX is planned for September of this year.
PRX’s Editor is Jorge Pullin, Chair of the Horace C. Hearne, Jr. Institute for Theoretical Physics and professor in the Louisiana State University Center for Computation & Technology and Department of Physics and Astronomy. Pullin received his Ph.D. from the Instituto Balseiro and has research interests in many aspects of gravitational physics, both classical and quantum mechanical. PRX Associate Editor Ling Miao received her Ph.D. in statistical physics, soft condensed matter physics, and biophysics from Simon Fraser University. A strongly international editorial board of distinguished scientists has been assembled with coverage of all fields of physics.
Articles in PRX will be published under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License, leaving copyright with the authors. Article-processing charges of $1500 per published article, paid by authors or their institutions, will cover peer review, composition, hosting, and archiving, and allow PRX to be freely available.
The American Physical Society is a non-profit membership organization working to advance and diffuse the knowledge of physics through its outstanding research journals, scientific meetings, and education, outreach, advocacy, and international activities. APS represents over 53,000 members, including physicists in academia, national laboratories, and industry in the United States and throughout the world. Society offices are located in College Park, MD (Headquarters), Ridge, NY, and Washington, D.C.
