New Open Access Journals by IOP

Now the Max Planck Society pays the article processing charges centrally for the following new gold open access journals by the Institute of Physics:

  • Journal of Physics Communications
  • Environmental Research Letters

Max Planck (corresponding) authors can already publish open access at no costs to themselves in the New Journal of Physics.
