Physical Review X Publishes First Five Papers

Ridge, NY, August 8, 2011 - The American Physical Society
presents the first five papers that are published in our new,
open access journal, Physical Review X (http://prx.aps.org/).
Under Physical Review X's open access publishing model,
they are
free for you to read and use.

Jorge Pullin, Editor, and Ling Miao, Associate Editor, are
encouraged by the topical spread of these first published
papers,  which range from the well-established field of
atomic, molecular
and optical physics to the still relatively new, broad and
active field that explores magnetism or spins at microscopic
level. They also extend into the interdisciplinary area:
In the
paper by Belik et al., statistical physics is applied to
understand epidemic spreading; and in another by Benmore and
Weber, experimental techniques such as acoustic levitation
x-ray scattering are used to obtain and characterize normally
hard-to-make amorphous forms of pharmaceutical drugs.

The editors are also pleased by the high scientific
quality and
potential significance of these contributions.

The five papers are too small a sample to be a basis for
making a  generalization about the future of Physical
Review X. But they
reflect APS's commitment to making Physical Review X a
journal of  scientific breadth and excellence. We are
confident that, with
the continuing and more focused effort of the editors and the
Editorial Board to attract and select outstanding papers
and with  an increasing support of the physics community,
Physical Review X  can only grow stronger.
