In the decision about where to submit a physics manuscript, which are the advantages or disadvantages of the new open access PRResearch as a better choice over PRA/B/C/D/E?
PRResearch is rather new and does not have an impact factor yet. Do you expect the impact factor would be comparable to the other PRA/B/C/D/E journals, or slightly higher/lower?
Apart from the impact factor, do you see any inherent advantage to publish in a full open access journal? Notice that also the other PR* journals have open access options.
Also, the fact that the journal is multidisciplinary (as PRL and PRX) can be an advantage or disadvantage? Are there any other aspects to consider?
From the APS website https://journals.aps.org/prresearch/welcome:
The acceptance criteria for PRResearch are aligned with those of other long-established journals in the family, such as Physical Review A, B, C, D, and E.
