Physics is an open access online publication containing commentaries on the best of the peer-reviewed research published in the journals of the American Physical Society (APS). The editor-in-chief of Physics is Gene D. Sprouse.[1] It highlights papers in Physical Review Letters and the Physical Review family of journals.[1] The journal was established in 2008.[2]


Physics contains three types of commentaries on research papers published by the APS: journalistic articles ("Focus"), in depth pieces written by active researchers ("Viewpoints"), and short summaries of a research paper ("Synopsis") written by editorial staff.[1] Readers get free access to the underlying research papers on which the Physics commentaries are based.
