WG2: Communication in Physics

WG2: Communication in Physics

The WG2, Communication in Physics, has been reconstituted to consider the problems that are emerging in electron publishing. It particularly will consider internet availability/ reliability, linking between societies and publishers, availability of electronic communication in isolated areas, archiving, peer review, and intellectual property.

Charge to Working Group

It is the primary mission of the working group to make a set of recommendations on important issues in the international aspects of physics communication, especially electronic publication, that are appropriate for IUPAP action.
