In fact, to tell the truth, there are many classic good articles in the journal, but there are more and more bad articles in recent years. Good articles are mostly contributed by older physicists. Now various publishers have published various high-impact factor journals. Except for some of these articles, which are indeed major discoveries, most of them are just hot spots and play to the gallery. Therefore, in the minds of the older generation of scientific researchers, APL is still very powerful and authoritative. However, with the launch of various new journals, the growth of a new generation of researchers, and the change in the Scientific research atmosphere, impact factors are about to become the gold standard for evaluating all kinds of things. Although it is unreasonable, we can't help it. This has led to most new generation of researchers generally submitted to high impact factor journals when they have any good work, and few people choose APL as the first choice. And in the past few years, many deputy editors of APL are really not good. Many articles have no highlights at all, but because the authors are authorities, the papers can be published. Valueless papers from the authorities can be published at their wills. For ordinary people, it is difficult to be accepted and the impact factor is low, which is really chilling. I think if the journal really wants to expand its influence, it won’t make much difference if it is not sent for review. I hope that it will be the key to carefully choosing an associate editor, otherwise it may really be ruined.

I think the 86th floor is right. I have submitted two or three articles in the past two years. I thought the quality of my articles was good, but they were all rejected. However, after I transferred to other journals, the number of citations of this article reached more than a dozen times, and the managing editor of each submission was the same person and never changed. I have also read many articles on APL. Some of the articles are of poor quality, but they can be published. So I think what the 86th floor said is reasonable. Now APL has really become a playground for the authorities, resulting in uneven article quality and very big differences. And now very few people like to cite APL. The processing speed of manuscripts is not as fast as before. It is recommended that you should be cautious when submitting to this journal. It is better not to submit to APL if you have articles of better qualities.

The downstairs is really nonsense. I submitted three articles last year and one got accepted. The other two were not sent for review, and fortunately, they were later submitted to the journals in Q1 of material category and got accepted after revisions, one in ASS and another in CEJ. I feel that the article that accepted here is not of high quality as the other two articles. Now APL has become a playground for the authority academics, resulting in different quality of articles. This is also one of the reasons why the impact factor has been falling. The impact factor for this year should be around 3.5. Downstairs, you must be dreaming of a top 5 within two years. Don't be fooled, everyone. Be cautious when submitting to this journal, and the speed is not as fast as in previous years. Some editors are irresponsible, and judge the quality of the article based on the first feeling. Of course, this journal is still authoritative, but it is not realistic to rush back to a Q1.

From what I’ve heard recently, the articles published in APL are still quite good. Many classic physics papers have been published in this journal. Our group submitted to APL recently, and our paper was accepted after 51 days. Apparently, the review period was longer than usual because one of the first three reviewers admitted that they did not understand our research, and therefore could not review the article. This was strange as the other two reviewers were thorough and critical, and clearly understood the evolution of the research (we were publishing a follow-up study to our advisor’s research). The editor found an alternative reviewer quickly, which was appreciated.

From my experience in publishing in this journal and from the research that I have read, I think that it provides high-quality scientific publications and is still one of the most important journals that provides solid scientific research.   I think that the journal's impact factor does not reflects the quality of the research published in it.

Let me see that the ambitious APL is back, and will refer to APL in the future, and good manuscripts will also be considered for delivery to APL.

The work is actually very beautiful. In a journal with more than 10 years, it has been in the middle of six months. It mainly encountered small peers who are doing the same or very similar topics. The reason for the draft is untenable.However, the editor stated that the editor actually only believed in the reviewer.Later, he switched to APL. The editor found two reviewers. During the revision period, he changed to find a new reviewer. After three revisions, he lasted for 8 months. He actually found four reviewers and finally acceptd them.Not easy.
