About the Journal

Communications Physics is an open access journal from Nature Research publishing high-quality research, reviews and commentary in all areas of physics. Research papers published by the journal represent significant advances bringing new insight to a specialized area of research.

Communications Physics complements the other Nature Research journals by providing a new open access option for physicists while applying less stringent criteria for impact and significance than the Nature-branded journals, including Nature Communications. All Nature Research journals, including Communications Physics, apply the same criteria for technical validity and adherence to ethical standards. More information about editorial policies at Nature Research can be found at http://www.nature.com/authors/policies/index.html.

Abstracting and indexing

As with any new journal, full indexing takes some time. Communications Physics has applied for inclusion within services including Clarivate Analytics Science Citation Index and Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) and will apply  for indexing in PubMed/MEDLINE as well as other relevant services as soon as possible.  We will update the journal web site to keep authors and readers up to date with the services the journal is indexed within.
