Reports on Progress in Physics is a monthly peer-reviewed scientific journal published by the IOP Publishing. The editor-in-chief as of 2015 is Gordon Baym (University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign).[1][2][3]


The focus of this journal is invited review articles covering all branches of physics. Each review will typically survey and critique a particular topic, or developments in a field. Introductions of articles are intended for a broad readership, beyond the specialist or expert. In addition to the traditional review article two other formats are available: Reports on Progress (about 20 pages) and Key Issues Reviews (about 10 pages).[3]
