New Journal of Physics
Launched in 1998 by the Institute of Physics and Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft, New Journal of Physics (NJP) was the first open-access journal to cover the whole of physics. Now established as one of the leading journals in physics, NJP has an Impact Factor of 3.31 and every month articles in the journal are downloaded over 80,000 times by readers in more than 180 countries.

NJP’s prime objective is to serve the whole physics community by providing the widest possible dissemination of peer-reviewed, cutting-edge research, and removing financial barriers for readers worldwide.

The German Physical Society (DPG) with a tradition extending back to 1845 is the largest physical society in the world with more than 59,000 members. The DPG sees itself as the forum and mouthpiece for physics and is a non-profit organisation that does not pursue financial interests. It supports the sharing of ideas and thoughts within the scientific community, fosters physics teaching and would also like to open a window to physics for all those with a healthy curiosity.

IOP Publishing
IOP Publishing provides publications through which leading-edge scientific research is distributed worldwide. IOP Publishing is central to the Institute of Physics (IOP), a not-for-profit society. Any financial surplus earned by IOP Publishing goes to support science through the activities of IOP.
Beyond our traditional journals programme, we make high-value scientific information easily accessible through an ever-evolving portfolio of community websites, magazines, conference proceedings and a multitude of electronic services. Focused on making the most of new technologies, we’re continually improving our electronic interfaces to make it easier for researchers to find exactly what they need, when they need it, in the format that suits them best.
