In response to the rapidly changing open access (OA) landscape, Elsevier brings the high standards of excellence of its established physics journal suite to Physics Open, a gold open access journal that seeks full research articles in all areas of physics and related interdisciplinary areas, be it fundamental or applied. The journal will cover theoretical, computational as well as experimental research.

The Board of Editors consists of a selection of editors from the Elsevier physics journal suite. The Board is committed to extending the high standards of excellence of their respective journals to this new journal.

Publishing in Physics Open allows authors to publish gold OA, while benefitting from the knowledge of experienced Editors and their partner journals at the same time. Physics Open will allow for data transfers from the partner journals, as well as for direct submissions.
