Frontiers reaches 6.4 on Journal Impact Factors
Frontiers in Physics publishes rigorously peer-reviewed research across the entire field, from experimental, to computational and theoretical physics. Field Chief Editor Alex Hansen at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology is supported by an outstanding Editorial Board of international experts. This multidisciplinary open-access journal is at the forefront of disseminating and communicating scientific knowledge and impactful discoveries to researchers, academics, engineers and the public worldwide.
To accomplish its goals the journal embraces a combination of gold open-access and an interactive review process focused exclusively on research and manuscript quality, designed to bring out the best of both. To enable the highest quality reviewing, submissions to Frontiers in Physics are made to appropriate specialty sections, each of which have their own expert editorial board. Frontiers in Physics is to be the journal of choice for publishing highly innovative research within any field of physics.
Frontiers in Physics is member of the Committee on Publication Ethics.

Frontiers in Physics is composed of the following Specialty Sections:
The specialty sections of Frontiers in Physics welcome submission of the following article types: Book Review, Brief Research Report, Correction, Data Report, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Protocols, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge, Systematic Review, Technology Report, Code, Clinical Trial and Policy Brief.
When submitting a manuscript to Frontiers in Physics, authors must submit the material directly to one of the specialty sections. Manuscripts are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the respective specialty section.
Articles published in the specialty sections above will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in the Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Physics.
