APS Journals


Physical Review Letters  (brief important papers, all topics in physics)

Physical Review Letters (PRL) is the world’s premier physics letter journal. It publishes short, high quality reports of significant and notable results in the full arc of fundamental and interdisciplinary physics research.

Physical Review A  (atomic, molecular, and optical physics)

Provides a dependable resource of worldwide developments in the rapidly evolving area of atomic, molecular, and optical physics and related fundamental concepts.

Physical Review B  (condensed matter and materials physics)

The largest and most comprehensive international journal specializing in condensed matter and materials physics, publishing important papers on a wide range of topics.

Physical Review C  (nuclear physics)

Contains research articles reporting experimental and theoretical results in all aspects of nuclear physics, including the nucleon-nucleon interaction, few-body systems, nuclear structure, nuclear reactions, relativistic nuclear collisions, hadronic physics and QCD, electroweak interaction, symmetries, and nuclear astrophysics.

Physical Review D  (particles, fields, gravitation and cosmology)

A leading journal in elementary particle physics, field theory, gravitation, and cosmology, appears monthly in two sections, D1 and D15.

Physical Review E  (statistical, nonlinear, and soft matter physics)

Broad and interdisciplinary in scope, focuses on collective phenomena of many-body systems, with statistical physics and nonlinear dynamics as the central themes of the journal.

Physical Review X  (open access articles, all topics of physics)

APS’s highly selective, online-only, fully open access journal launched in May 2011. It aims to publish, as timely as possible, a limited number of key papers from all areas of pure, applied, and interdisciplinary physics, that merit broad dissemination and high visibility.

Physical Review Applied  (applied physics)

Publishes high-quality papers that bridge the gap between engineering and physics, between industry and academia, and between current and future technologies.

Reviews of Modern Physics  (in-depth articles, all topics in physics)

A part of the Physical Review journals since 1929, serves students and established researchers in physics and related fields. RMP brings the broad fundamental physics literature in established topical areas together and places it within the context of current trends in research and applications.

Physical Review Special Topics – Accelerators and Beams

A peer-reviewed, purely electronic journal, distributed without charge to readers and funded by sponsors from national and international laboratories and other partners. The articles are published by the American Physical Society under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License.

Physical Review Special Topics – Physics Education Research

A peer-reviewed online open-access journal sponsored by the American Physical Society (APS), the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT) and the APS Forum on Education. The articles are published by the American Physical Society under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License.

The APS Journal Archive  (back to 1893)

Provides immediate access to the APS journal collection dating back to the first volume of each journal. A subscription to PROLA gives access to all journal content, except for the current year and the preceding three years.

In addition APS offers several publications and informational websites that are available free to all users, with no registration or subscription required.

Physics  (highlighting significant papers from APS journals)

Provides daily online-only news and commentary about a selection of papers from the APS journal collection. The website is aimed at the reader who wants to keep up with highlights of physics research with explanations that don’t rely on jargon and technical detail.

Physics Central  (educational/informational site about physics, for students and the public)

With PhysicsCentral, the American Physical Society (representing some 48,000 physicists), communicates the excitement and importance of physics to everyone. We invite you to visit our site every week to find out how physics is part of your world.

American Physical Society homepage

A non-profit membership organization working to advance and diffuse the knowledge of physics through its outstanding research journals, scientific meetings, and education, outreach, advocacy, and international activities.
