Advances in Physics is a bimonthly scientific journal published by Taylor & Francis that was established in 1952. The journal is also issued as a supplement to the Philosophical Magazine (see Harvard reference below). Peer review is determined on a case-by-case basis. The editor-in-chief is David Sherrington (University of Oxford).
The frequency of this publication varied from 1952 until 2007, when it became a bimonthly journal.
Aims and scope
The focus of the journal is critical reviews that are relevant to condensed matter physicists. Each review is intended to present the author's perspective. Readers are expected to have a fundamental knowledge of the subject. These reviews are sometimes complemented by a "Perspectives" section which publishes shorter articles that may be controversial, with the intention of stimulating debate. The intended audience consists of physicists, materials scientists, and physical chemists working in universities, industry, and research institutes.
