    Is Physics Essays reputable?

    I see they do dare publishing ATM stuff, they do ask for copyrights ownership and they are reselling the articles.

    Is it still considered a reputable journal?

    Thanks!

    Didn't you read the "Authors' Information" link on their site?

    Submission of a manuscript and its final assignment of the copyright to the Publisher, if and when accepted, shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Province of Ontario and the laws of Canada applicable therein. The author attorns to the jurisdiction of the courts of the Province of Ontario and the federal courts of Canada.
    Edit to insert apology: I misread the OP as asking if PE holds copyright over submitted articles, rather than stating that they do. Mea culpa.

    As for being reputable: according to Wikipedia, Physics Essays was assigned an impact factor of 0.245 in 2013 (per Journal Citation Reports). My impression from other forums is that PE is more lenient in what they'll publish (ATM, fringe, speculative, etc.) and that perhaps some/several institutions do not subscribe for that reason.

    In a word, no.

    It's a step above self-publishing, but not by much.

    Ok thanks but in my case itís too late because I already signed their form and I am right across the Ottawa River so Iím in their juridiction.

    Not that ATM got many options anyways.

    Where you live isn't really the point. The act of submitting your paper for publication places you under the jurisdiction where they operate.

    philippeb8...And you could still change it a bit, so it is a different copyright, and submit it to the Gravity Research Foundation contest, where it will get a read, and you will win some $$$$ if it's correct and original. Some very good physicists have posted there. such as John Ellis SEE:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Ellis_(physicist)

    Thanks I saw this contest but I missed this yearís deadline, putting the emphasis on publishing it in mainstream journals which is nearly impossible.

    Iíll see if I can participate for next yearís edition.

    I just wanted to add that I can still withdraw anytime before their acceptance but after its acceptance, I also "retain a right to republish or grant to third parties permission to republish all or part of the Work, only if written permission is obtained from PEP."

    Maybe it's at the same level of reputation as "The African Review of Physics" and I know the maths make sense in both but I'll put Canadian journals first.
