To date there are just three journals: PMC Biophysics, PMC Physics A, and PMC Physics B. Interestingly, commercial publisher Springer Science+Business Media purchased BioMed Central in October of 2008. If wide dissemination of research results coupled with peer review is important to you, perhaps your next article might be destined for PhysMath Central. It’s certainly an option for researchers to consider.
