physica status solidi (RRL) - Rapid Research Letters
The journal physica status solidi (RRL) is a pure online Journal (since 2013).
physica status solidi is devoted to the thorough peer review and the rapid publication of new and important results in all fields of solid state and materials physics, from basic science to applications and devices. Being among the largest and most important international publications, the pss journals publish review articles, letters and original work as well as special issues and conference contributions.
physica status solidi (RRL) - Rapid Research Letters was designed to offer extremely fast publication times and is currently the fastest peer-reviewed publication medium in solid state physics. With submission numbers rising, editorial priority handling maintains the median turnaround time for editorial decisions at 17 days, and at 6 days from acceptance to online publication of the typeset and proof-read Letter. It communicates important findings with a high degree of novelty and need for express publication, as well as other results of immediate interest to the solid state physics and materials science community. Published Letters require approval by at least two independent referees.
The journal covers topics such as preparation, structure and simulation of advanced materials, theoretical and experimental investigations of the atomistic and electronic structure, optical, magnetic, superconducting, ferroelectric and other properties of solids, nanostructures and low-dimensional systems as well as device applications. Rapid Research Letters particularly invites papers from interdisciplinary and emerging new areas of research.
With a new 2013 Impact Factor of 2.343, pss (RRL) – Rapid Research Letters continues to be one of the most attractive journals striving for fast publication of high-quality research in solid state physics and physical materials science. The latest Immediacy Index has strongly increased to 0.721 (+36% vs. 2012).
