There is no doubt that it is an exciting time to be studying quantum properties of atoms, molecules, and nuclei. Increasingly deep connections between long-established fields: “atomic physics”, “molecular physics”, “chemical physics”, “nuclear physics”, “scattering theory”, “nuclear magnetic resonance”, “quantum optics”, etc., are blurring old research labels. Atoms is a new open access journal with a broad scope that will aim to capture some of these exciting changes and developments, with a quantum flavor. The Editorial Board's collective expertise spans the fields involved and reflects the international communities active in these areas.
Our journal joins a sister publication now in its 17th volume, Molecules, which covers synthetic organic chemistry and natural product chemistry.
Atoms welcomes research papers on experimental, computational, and theoretical topics, as well as the associated data, programs, or experimental details to be published as supplementary material. We also welcome your proposals for special issues or guest editorships.
So now that the new quantum era is here, we invite you to join in by sending your contributions falling within the broad scope of Atoms.
