The Physics Publishing Alliance - Portal for Electronic Reference

In 2009 SIF has given support to the initiative promoted by the European Physical Society to create a European platform for the physics journals published by the main national member societies either in partnership or not.

The journals presently included and supported by the APP are The European Physical Journal (EPJ) and Journal of Physics (JPhys) in their different sections, Europhysics Letters (EPL), and New Journal of Physics (NJP).

The societies involved are the Institute of Physics with IOP Publishing, the Societé Française de Physique with EDPSciences, the Società Italiana di Fisica, the Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft, the European Physical Society and the publisher Springer.

The overall objective of this alliance is to enhance the visibility and impact of the member journals with the aim to make these journals attractive and competitive on the world scene.

In this perspective, SIF has recently accepted to become Associate Member of NJP that is electronic only and completely open access. As part of the agreement, individual Members of SIF benefit from a reduced article charge.
