The Journal of Applied Physics is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published since 1931 by the American Institute of Physics. Its emphasis is on the understanding of the physics underpinning modern technology.
The journal was initially owned by the American Physical Society and was, for its first seven volumes, known simply as Physics. In January 1937, for its eighth volume, the ownership was then handed over 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".
