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.
The 2015 Impact Factor 2.578 represents a solid 20% increase versus prior year, emphasizing the success of pss (RRL) – Rapid Research Letters as one of the most attractive fast-publication and high-quality journals in solid state physics and physical materials science. The latest Immediacy Index has strongly increased to 1.295 (+42% vs. 2014).
