BioMed Central to Provide PhysMath Platform

BioMed Central (, a publisher of open access, peer-reviewed journals, announced the first three journals to be launched by PhysMath Central: PMC Physics A, PMC Physics B, and PMC Physics C. PhysMath Central ( is BioMed Central’s open access publishing platform for the fields of physics, mathematics, and computer science. These three titles will begin accepting submissions this month. Four more journals in physics and mathematics are planned for launch in 2007, with others to follow in the future. The PhysMath Central publishing platform is based on the open access publishing model pioneered by BioMed Central for biological and medical research.

Launched to meet the increasing need for open access journals from major research institutes (such as CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research) and other funding organizations and government bodies, PhysMath Central seeks to make research in physics, mathematics, and computer science more widely available and to increase access to this research to all institutes and individuals, free of subscription charges.

PhysMath Central is currently recruiting some of the leading minds in physics and mathematics for its editorial boards. These experts will spearhead journal development and serve as editors and reviewers. Massimo Giovannini of the Theoretical Physics Division at CERN has agreed to serve on the PMC Physics A editorial board. Giovannini expressed support for open access publishing, citing the high subscription fees as a hindrance to scientific progress. The new editor in chief of PMC Physics A is Professor Ken Peach, director of the John Adams Institute for Accelerator Science at the University of Oxford and Royal Holloway University of London and chair of the Scientific Policy Committee at CERN.
