Proceedings of the Royal Society A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences

The Royal Society’s physical sciences research journal, publishing high-quality research and review articles from all disciplines in the physical sciences. This is a Plan S compliant Transformative Journal.
<p>The photo shows Heim glacier, Greenland as it flows from the ice sheet into the ocean. The ice navigates through several nunatak rock outcrops and becomes progressively fractured until it breaks off into the ocean. The negotiation of glacier ice across rocks is the topic of the paper “Subtemperate regelation exhibits power-law premelting” in this issue, where Meyer and colleagues analyze the role of temperature in setting rate of melting and refreezing through bedrock bumps. The photo of Heim glacier was taken by Meyer from a helicopter using a Sony alpha A6500 camera with minimal editing.

Aims and scope

Proceedings A

Proceedings A publishes articles across the chemical, computational, Earth, engineering, mathematical, and physical sciences. The journal publishes research papers, as well as short reviews containing original and interesting new ideas. 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.
