The Physical Review Celebrates its 125th Anniversary


In 1893, the newly founded journal The Physical Review published its first research paper, one of five in the inaugural issue. Since then, the Physical Review family of journals has grown to encompass 14 high-quality publications.

This year, APS celebrates 125 years of excellence in physics publishing in the Physical Review journals. Throughout 2018, APS News will publish editorials, articles about the history of the Physical Review collection, and profiles of each of the Physical Review journals.

To kick off the anniversary, we start with a Back Page article by APS Publisher Matthew Salter and APS Editor in Chief Michael Thoennessen.
