American Physical Society Announces Physics, A New, Free, Online Publication
Physics highlights exceptional papers from the Physical Review journals through expert commentaries written by active researchers.
Stay informed about the most important developments in your field and others by visiting APS's new, free website. Commentaries are written for broad accessibility and updated weekly.
Physics features three kinds of articles: Viewpoints are essays of approximately 1000–1500 words that focus on a single Physical Review paper or PRL letter and put this work into broader context. Trends are concise review articles (3000–4000 words in length) that survey a particular area and look for interesting developments in that field. Synopses (200 words) are staff-written distillations of interesting and important papers each week. In addition, we intend to publish selected Letters to the Editor to allow readers a chance to comment on the commentaries and summaries.
