About SciPost Physics


SciPost Physics is a premium-quality, two-way open access, peer-witnessed refereed Journal for the general field of Physics.

It aims at providing scientists with a publishing platform in which uncompromising scientific quality meets the highest achievable standards of open accessibility, with a resolutely international outlook.

Two-way open access means free for readers, free for authors: there are no subscription or download costs, and authors are freed from dealing with article submission and/or processing charges.

The peer-witnessed refereeing process guarantees high-quality, responsible refereeing, with demonstrably greater utility for authors and recognition for referees.


SciPost Physics publishes outstanding-quality research articles in the domains of Experimental, Theoretical and Computational physics, among which:

  • Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics
  • Biophysics
  • Condensed Matter Physics
  • Fluid Dynamics
  • Gravitation
  • Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics
  • High-Energy Physics
  • Mathematical Physics
  • Nuclear Physics
  • Quantum Statistical Mechanics
  • Statistical and Soft Matter Physics


The journal accepts three types of content: Letters, Articles and Reviews.

  • Letters report broad-interest, significant breakthroughs in Physics, of interest and importance to researchers in multiple subject areas.
  • Articles provide in-depth, detailed reports of groundbreaking research within one or more subject areas.
  • Reviews are short pieces taking a snapshot of a research area, written by recognized leaders in the field, providing a critical assessment of current frontline research and providing pointers towards future opportunities.
