We publish papers that are important and clear, and often of broad interest. To maximise their exposure, we publish them in the most prestigious journals appropriate. Here are some of the journals we have published in, followed by some that we haven’t, but would like to.
Part of the prestigious Nature Reviews portfolio, it publishes review articles on all of physics. Review journals tend to be highly cited.
It publishes the highest-quality research in all branches of physics, but is less interdisciplinary than Physical Review Letters and X.
Modelled on Nature Communications, it collects the best of Science’s spillover, publishing significant advances across all areas of science.
Collecting the best of Nature’s spillover, it publishes significant advances across all of science. It’s the analogue of Science Advances.
Part of the Nature Partner Journal series, it publishes esteemed research on quantum computing, communications and information theory.
One of many ACM journals, it publishes notable research on discrete and continuous simulation and innovative new methods for doing it.
It publishes significant papers over 15 pages on all aspects of mathematics. Its sister journal, Proceedings, publishes shorter papers.
Originally established in 1831 for shorter papers, it publishes notable research across the mathematical, physical and engineering sciences.
It publishes notable research that applies physics and mathematics to problems in biology and medicine. Papers tend to be less technical.
It publishes work on combinatorics and its links with other branches of mathematics, as well as aspects of theoretical computer science.
One of several SIAM journals, it publishes research on combinatorics, graph theory, discrete optimization, coding and communication theory.
It publishes papers over 12 pages long on probability theory. Its sister journal, Electronic Communications, publishes shorter papers.
Subtitled “Statistical Mechanics and its Applications”, its reputation has risen over the last 20 years to compare favourably with PRE.
Established in 1971, it was a favourite journal of Paul Erdȍs. It publishes work on discrete mathematics, combinatorics and graph theory.
Launched in 2017, it publishes materials research at the level of Physical Review A–E. It is one of several new topic-focused APS journals.
It publishes notable work on all aspects of high-energy physics, including particle physics, field theory, gravitation and cosmology.
It publishes mechanics research, of at most seven pages, on the behaviour of continua, fluids, solids and particles, and their mixtures.
Published by the British and German physics societies, it covers all areas of physics, but has yet to compete with PRL in terms of prestige.
Set up when J Physical Chemistry refused to publish theoretical work, it now covers all areas of chemical physics and physical chemistry.
It publishes on all areas of statistical physics, broadly interpreted to allow interdisciplinary work. Papers can be strongly mathematical.
It publishes on classical GR and its applications, experimental gravitation, cosmology, quantum gravity, and superstrings and supersymmetry.
It publishes on the conceptual bases of the fundamental theories of physics, and their logical, mathematical and philosophical premises.
Established in 2020, this new journal aims to publish notable research across complex systems, nonlinear phenomena and network theory.
In its heyday it published papers by Faraday, Maxwell and Thomson. Today it focuses on the structure and properties of condensed matter.
It publishes notable research on statistical, nonlinear, biological and soft matter physics, but in recent years has somewhat declined.
It publishes on classical and quantum statistical physics, disordered systems, biological modeling and related interdisciplinary topics.
Originally Europhysics Letters, it rebranded with hopes of directly competing with PRL. But it never quite managed, and is now in decline.
Subtitled “Condensed Matter and Complex Systems” and part of the EPJ series, it formed from the merger of related foreign language journals.
Alongside Science, the premier science journal, covering all disciplines. In terms of content, it has a bias towards the life sciences.
Alongside Nature, it is the premier science journal, covering all disciplines. It too has a life sciences bias, but less so than Nature.
J Amer Math Soc
Along with Annals, it is a contender for the premier mathematics journal. It publishes highly significant advances in pure mathematics.
Annals of Mathematics
Established in 1884 and considered by many the premier mathematics journal, it publishes advances of great significance across all aspects.
Nature Machine Intel
Set up by the Nature group in 2019 to be the leading AI journal, it publishes on machine learning, artificial intelligence and robotics.
Physical Review X
Set up to be the open-access version of PRL, it is much more selective, and now sits between PRL and Nature Physics in terms of prestige.
Proc London Math Soc
It publishes esteemed papers of at most 15 pages on all areas of mathematics. Its sister journal, Transactions, publishes longer papers.
J High Energy Physics
It publishes notable research in particle physics, quantum and gauge field theories, symmetry, gravitation and strings and branes.
Physical Review A
It publishes on atomic, molecular and optical physics and quantum information. In past years its prestige has been higher than it shows now.
