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.

Communications Physics publishes primary research Articles (both full and shorter papers), Reviews, Comments, and Matters Arising. A guide to our content types can be found here.

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 here.
