Barry Sanders: a new Editor-in-Chief for New Journal of Physics

New Journal of Physics (NJP) has a new Editor-in-Chief, professor Barry Sanders (University of Calgary). Sanders takes the baton from professor Eberhard Bodenschatz (Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization) who held the position from 2005-2015, and who was instrumental in keeping the journal at the forefront of innovation in open access publishing.

Sanders recorded a short video introduction to the journal, watch as he explains his vision and his ambitious plans to develop NJP into a leading multidisciplinary forum to showcase the best of physics scholarly publishing.

NJP was launched in 1998 as one of the first open access, fully online journals in physics. It’s scope covers all of physics, and it specialises in broad interest, high impact articles – often resulting in press releases and news coverage. As a sister journal to the Journal of Physics series you’ve no doubt heard of it, or at least seen one of the news stories like this one on cloaking.

We wish NJP all the best as they embark on this new period of development for the journal.
