JPhys+: a new blog for the community

The landscape of scientific research and scientific publishing is changing faster than ever. The quantity of published research across the globe is at an unprecedented high, and the public appetite to learn about new breakthroughs and discoveries is unquenchable. With this background, JPhys+ offers a new way to enhance this process of discovery, and to work with the scientific community to promote the dissemination and understanding of research across a broad range of disciplines.

JPhys+ is brought to you by the Journal of Physics series, a major group of journals from IOP Publishing that has been an integral part of the research community for almost 50 years. The five journals encompass all of the core physics fields, as well as interdisciplinary subjects like biophysics and physical chemistry.
