Physica Scripta is celebrating an increase in Impact Factor to 1.296 - the highest it has ever been, as reported in the 2013 Journal Citation Reports published by Thomson Reuters. With the increase in Impact Factor, there has never been a better time to publish with us to achieve worldwide visibility for your work. Visit the Author Benefits page for more information.

A tale of two Nobel Prizes
Multiscale modeling of nerve agent hydrolysis mechanisms: a tale of two Nobel Prizes by Martin Field and Troy Wymore has been published as Physica Scripta's first open access paper. In the same way that The Higgs bridge explained the physics behind the 2013 Nobel Prize in Physics and the Nobel Symposium, this article draws upon the connection between two Nobel Prizes, Peace and Chemistry, in clarifying the research underlying the 2013 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. These articles are intended for undergraduates and general readers.

Crystallography and the Gregori Aminoff Prize
To mark the fact that 2014 has been designated the 'International Year of Crystallography', Physica Scripta will be publishing a virtual issue containing Invited Comments on the history of crystallography, as well as autobiographical articles from some of the current and previous winners of the Gregori Aminoff Prize. You can read the first papers published in this virtual issue here.
