Physics Letters A offers an exciting publication outlet for novel and frontier physics. It encourages the submission of new research on: condensed matter physics, theoretical physics, nonlinear science, statistical physics, mathematical and computational physics, general and cross-disciplinary physics (including foundations), atomic, molecular and cluster physics, plasma and fluid physics, optical physics, biological physics and nanoscience.

The journal's high standard and wide dissemination ensures a broad readership amongst the physics community. Rapid publication times and flexible length restrictions give Physics Letters A the edge over other journals in the field.






In 1986, Physics Letters A (Vol 115, No. 1,2) introduced the Nonlinear Science section as a response to the growing number of papers in this subject area.

There are three Editors with special responsibility for the Nonlinear Science section –

A.R.  Bishop, MS-B262, Theoretical Division and Center for Nonlinear Studies, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, NM 87545, USA (Nonlinear Science, Condensed matter physics)

C.R.  Doering, Dept. of Mathematics, University of Michigan, 525 East University, Ann Arbor, MI 48109-1109, USA (Nonlinear science, Statistical physics, Biological Physics)

A.P.  Fordy, Centre for Nonlinear Studies and Dept. of Applied Mathematical Studies, University of Leeds, Leeds LS2 9JT, UK (Nonlinear science, Mathematical physics)
