History[edit]

The journal was initially owned by the American Physical Society and was, for its first seven volumes, known simply as Physics. In January 1937 ownership was transferred to the American Institute of Physics "in line with the efforts of the American Physical Society to enhance the standing of physics as a profession".[2]
