What is Physics Procedia?
Launched in January 2008, Physics Procedia is an e-only and open access product focusing entirely on publishing conference proceedings. Physics Procedia enables fast dissemination so conference delegates can publish their papers in a dedicated online issue on ScienceDirect, which is then made freely available worldwide. Physics Procedia will cover proceedings in all topics in Physics with the exception of high energy and nuclear physics, as our journal Nuclear and Particle Physics Proceedings is the primary outlet for proceedings in this area. The journal is indexed in Scopus, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature.
For authors publishing in Physics Procedia, accepted manuscript will be governed by CC BY-NC-ND. For further details see our copyright information. How are conferences evaluated for inclusion in Physics Procedia?
Conference proceedings are accepted for publication in Physics Procedia based on suitability of scope and are required to meet certain criteria, including the assurance that all papers are original, will be subject to peer review and will not be published elsewhere. Elsevier will evaluate all proposals on the basis of key information related to the conference provided by the organizers, for example, the conference website, programme, supporting organization and contact details of the committee and keynote speakers. Elsevier may make contact with members of the committee and keynote speakers to obtain further information about the conference during the evaluation process.

What does Physics Procedia offer authors and conferences organizers?
Physics Procedia offers a single, highly recognized platform where conference papers can be hosted and accessed by millions of researchers. Authors then know where to go to keep abreast of the latest developments in their field. All proceedings appear online, on Science Direct, within 8 weeks of acceptance of the final manuscripts via the conference organizer and are freely available to all users. Physics Procedia offers authors and conference organizers a fast and cost effective way to provide maximum exposure for their papers.
Why should conference organizers choose Physics Procedia?
Unlike regular journals, there is no limit to the amount of papers a Physics Procedia issue can contain and pricing is affordable, clear and transparent. Physics Procedia offers immediate access for all, with papers online within 8 weeks of acceptance, and open access providing maximum exposure for individual papers and the related conference. Organizers are being credited on the actual issue and are fully responsible for quality control, the review process and the content of individual conference papers.
There is an agreed fee, based on the size of the proceedings, which includes online publication on ScienceDirect and free access after acceptance. The agreement must hold an estimated number of submissions. Beyond the agreed number an extra cost is levied.
In addition to the online version there is the possibility to purchase paper copies, CD-ROMs and USB sticks. Moreover, interactive media possibilities such as webcasts and web seminars can be acquired for extra exposure both before and after the conference.Can Physics Procedia be sponsored?
We are open to discussing sponsoring possibilities at all times. Sponsors can include funding bodies, government agencies and/or industry. Benefits to sponsors include visibility amongst a scientific audience and the opportunity to communicate messages via a peer-reviewed platform. Benefits to authors and conference organizers are the further dissemination of material to an international audience and reduced costs to the overall conference budget.
