Springer and the Brazilian Physical Society (SBF) will collaborate to publish the society’s official publication, the Brazilian Journal of Physics, beginning in 2011. The journal presents cutting-edge research on many topics in physics, from scientists based in Brazil and around the world.
Founded in 1971, the Brazilian Journal of Physics is a peer-reviewed international journal, which publishes new and original research results from all areas of physics. Contents include theoretical, practical and experimental papers as well as high-quality review papers. Besides four regular issues per year, the journal also presents special reviews focusing on hot topics which are particularly relevant in Brazil. Antonio Sergio Teixeira Pires of the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, is editor-in-chief.
Authors submitting papers to the Brazilian Journal of Physics will benefit from the international network of reviewers established by the Brazilian Physical Society. In addition to Springer’s global dissemination via SpringerLink, the journal is currently distributed to more than 6,000 members of the Brazilian Physical Society.
Harry Blom, Editorial Director Astronomy and Brazilian Market Development at Springer, said, “We are delighted to collaborate with such a professional learned society. As Springer has just opened a new office in São Paulo, working with Brazilian societies and book trade partners will be much easier.”
Celso Pinto de Melo, President of the Brazilian Physical Society, said, “We are very pleased to collaborate with Springer to strengthen the position of the Brazilian Journal of Physics in the physics community. We expect to attract a wide range of contributors and make it a journal of choice for the publicati on of relevant research in physics.”
The Brazilian Physical Society – Sociedade Brasileira de Física (http://www.sbfisica.org.br) – was founded in 1966 and has its headquarters at the University of São Paulo. The society brings together Brazilian physics professors, students, and other physicists with the aim of improving the education of physics at all levels and to stimulate research in physics in Brazil. It encourages the scientific exchange between physicists in Brazil and rest of the world and promotes the dissemination of physics knowledge through journals, books, the press, radio, television and the Internet.
