Scope:

Proceedings A publishes articles across the chemical, computational, Earth, engineering, mathematical, and physical sciences. The articles published are high-quality, original, fundamental articles of interest to a wide range of scientists, and often have long citation half-lives. As well as established disciplines, we encourage emerging and interdisciplinary areas.

Additional free text:

Proceedings A gives authors and reviewers an option to choose between traditional and open peer review... Where authors opt for open peer review, Proceedings A will make the editorial process transparent for all accepted papers, by publishing reviewer reports, the substantive part of decision letter after review and the associated author responses alongside published articles. This will allow readers to better assess the published paper and provide post-publication comments (which will also be published). If the reviewers have opted to disclose their names this will be included too. Referee reports are made public under the CC-BY open access licence. Website Instructions for authors
