As of 2021, SciPost follows a “mild layering” approach to journals in a given field.
At the top is a “flagship” journal, with the most stringent acceptance criteria.
This is accompanied by a “Core” journal, with more accessible criteria.
We are also planning a “Selections” venue (not yet active) highlighting the very best publications, see https://scipost.org/SciPostSelect/about
For an example, see the current offerings in Physics at https://scipost.org/journals/?field=physics
This layering allows to offer top-tier publishing venues aiming to replace existing “glossy”-class journals, while offering more accessible alternatives for scientists to publish their whole portfolio of articles through our systems.
We welcome community questions, feedback and suggestions on the current construction.
The discussion here will form input for future considerations on potential restructuring of our journals offerings.
