Contemporary Physics is a peer-reviewed scientific journal publishing introductory articles on important recent developments in physics. Editorial screening and peer review is carried out by members of the editorial board.

Overview[edit]

Contemporary Physics has been published by Taylor & Francis since 1959 and publishes four issues per year. The subjects covered by this journal are: astrophysics, atomic and nuclear physics, chemical physics, computational physics, condensed matter physics, environmental physics, experimental physics, general physics, particle & high energy physics, plasma physics, space science, and theoretical physics.[1]

Aims[edit]

The journal publishes introductory review articles on a range of recent developments in physics and intends to be of particular use to undergraduates, teachers and lecturers, and those starting postgraduate studies.Contemporary Physics also contains a major section devoted to standard book reviews and essay reviews which review books in the context of the general aspects of a field which have a wide appeal.[2]

Abstracting and indexing[edit]

According to the Thomson Reuters Journal Citation Reports, the journal has a 2015 impact factor of 5.000.[2] Contemporary Physics is abstracted and indexed in Inspec, EBSCO Publishing, Current Contents, Current Mathematical Publications, Mathematical Reviews, SciSearch, and SciBase.[3]

Notable authors[edit]

Contemporary Physics has attracted articles from a number of prominent scientists, including:
