New Quantum Foundations Journal

  1. Dec 8, 2014 #1
    Not sure if this was posted but I came across a fairly recent online journal specializing on Quantum foundations that some might find interesting:
    http://www.ijqf.org/wps/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/IJQF-flyer1.pdf
    http://www.ijqf.org/

    Some topics issues that will be published/discussed:
    • Protective Measurement and Quantum Reality
    • Quantum Nonlocality and Reality - 50 Years of Bell's theorem
    • PBR Theorem and Beyond
    • 90 Years of Quantum Mechanics
    • Meaning of the wave function

    This looks both interesting and promising. One question: is it closed circle? or behind paywall?

    It appears to be open without a paywall. This includes the articles, blogs and discussion. And some of the big names in quantum foundations participate in the discussion/blogs/papers:

    So basically I saw it like some sort of a blog, in which *usually famous* people propose a paper to the available audience (much like arxiv.org), get comments (from subsribed members) and get the final go-ahead from the referees *editorial board*. But it's really interesting to follow on the 'kostenlos' part. It would be a pity if they were to charge money to Joe Does like me.
