At Elsevier our goal is simple: to ensure researchers receive the support they need. With over 100 years of experience in publishing high-quality Physics journals,we have learned to recognize the specific needs of the Physics community and how to help you excel and to build your career. How do we do this? We publish 79 Physics journals in various fields to enable publication in various disciplines, to encourage communication within and across disciplines and to further develop new interdisciplinary fields.
Meet Physics Open, the newest addition to Elsevier’s gold open access journal suite. Physics Open welcomes research from all main areas in physics and related areas – whether that be applied, experimental or theoretical physics in nature.
Physics Open sits right beside your favourite physics journal(s), offering you an expert-led open access option.
To ensure our journal standards remain high, we have invited top Editors from our renowned, reputable journals onto the board. You as an author benefit from their expert input, while being able to fulfil your gold OA needs.
Rethink the way you publish
Writing, submitting and publishing your research takes up a lot of time and energy. We develop faster, more effective and truly innovative solutions to improve the manuscript submission and peer review process.
Open Access for Physics Journals: What are your options?
There are many options within Elsevier Physics to publish your next article open access. Most of our journals are either full open access or offer an open access option.

What does this mean for you as an author?
Authors can simply continue to publish their research in these journals as they always have. Upon acceptance, articles will be published open access, under a CC-BY license. Authors do not have to pay any publication fees for open access as these are covered by the SCOAP3 project.
Benefits of publishing in Nuclear Physics B and Physics Letters B as part of the SCOAP3 model:
- You can publish open access without paying the fees! (These are covered by the SCOAP3 project offering a zero-cost, hassle-free option)
- You retain the copyright
- Your article is published under a CC BY user license which permits re-use
- Your article is published with permanent open access on ScienceDirect – Elsevier’s leading information solution that attracts 15 million unique visitors per month
The academic community has demanded more choice, accuracy and insight into journal performance, and Elsevier has responded with new metrics. CiteScore is one of these new metrics and is a simple way of measuring the citation impact of sources, such as journals.
Elsevier aims to offer you the fastest possible speed of publication, without compromising on the quality of our peer-review process. This is a promise the editorial and publishing teams work hard to keep.
