I’m very happy and truly honored by the responsibility of becoming an Editor of Papers in Physics. This is a non-profit, accessible price, open-access journal, ran by physicists for physicists. Which further allows the “open review” treatment, that highlights not only the work done by authors but also by referees and editors.
The journal platform needs a touch of modernization, that’s true; but we’re working on it. The assignment of an official impact factor is expected soon and we will boost this journal up.
