  • Original insights into the derivation of results
  • Descriptions of new laboratory exercises
  • Scholarly or reflective articles at appropriate levels
  • Descriptions of successful original student projects
  • Discussions of the history and philosophy of physics.
  • Reports of new developments in methods for teaching physics and in the physics curriculum.
