What can CQG+ do for you?

Adam Day

Adam Day is the Publisher of Classical and Quantum Gravity and CQG+

Our primary goal with CQG+ is to raise the visibility of some of the best papers in CQG.

Take a look at the table below this post: it shows the 20 most downloaded papers in CQG since the launch of CQG+.  At the time that the data was collected, 15 papers had been promoted by CQG+. 13 of those are to be found in the top 20 (and the other 2 are not far behind).

This leaves no doubt in my mind that CQG+ is achieving its goal – but what does this mean for you?

Well, the increased visibility of CQG+ articles helps you, as a reader of the journal, to find high quality work in CQG as soon as it is peer reviewed.

Furthermore, as an author of the journal, if your paper is selected for promotion by CQG+, awareness of your work will be boosted.  We hope that you will publish your next great paper in CQG and have the chance to experience this benefit.

You can receive updates from CQG+ at a schedule of your choosing by entering your email address in the box at the foot of this page.  Readers can also expect to learn about forthcoming CQG activities including our ever popular focus issues and sponsorships of conferences and prizes.

Finally, I draw your attention to the number 1 most downloaded article on this list. This article was referenced by an excellent post on the popular io9 blog and attracted the interest of many thousands of readers.  Along with the CQG+ articles, it’s another great example of the value of visibility on the web.

If you have any questions or comments about CQG+, we are, as always, eager to have your feedback.
