List of Journal in Physics

Sometimes it’s hard to choose where to submit a paper. Here there is a list of journals I considered as a good sample for somebody working in my field. The data about Journals’ quartile and impact factor was taken from the Web of Science (InCites Journal Citation Report 2018, Report 2019)

Comments and suggestions are more than welcome.
