What are we looking forward to in 2016?

It’s been a busy, exciting, and fantastically successful year for the JPhys+ blog and Journal of Physics series and we’re all looking forward to what the new year will bring.

2016 will see the launch of a new special issue for ‘Emerging Leaders’, a collaborative effort across the JPhys series to recognise the next generation of leaders in our research communities who could shape the direction of research in the next 50 years. The special issue forms part of the celebrations of the upcoming 50th anniversary of the JPhys series, for which preparations are well underway. Here on the blog, we’re excited about the new changes and developments planned for next year. We’re pleased to say that we will be continuing the CDT-CMP blog posts as well as starting new CDT-Photovoltaics (PV) posts from January.

-We have several upcoming special issues including: Combinatorics of lattice models: a special issue in honour of Tony Guttmann’s 70th birthday, Marian Smoluchowski’s 1916 paper—a century of inspiration, New moonshines

-We’re excited to be welcoming several new members to the journals editorial board: Dr Michael Hall,  Dr Thierry Dauxios, Professor Robert Ziff and Professor Lei-Han Tang. These are in addition to Dr Guilio Chiribella, Dr Lorenza Viola, Professor Joachim Krug and Dr Yariv Kafri who have also recently joined us.

-And, we’re looking forward to continued success for our newly launched Biological Modelling section and newly introduced Letters


We will be publishing the following Special Issues next year: Antihydrogen and positronium, Atomic and molecular data for astrophysicist, Rydberg atomic physics, Atomic and molecular processes in the ultracold regime, the chemical regime and astrophysicists, Emerging leaders, Quantum many body physics with more to come…
