Spotlighting Exceptional Research
APS launched Physics to help physicists and physics students learn about exciting new developments outside of their own subfields. Physics highlights exceptional papers from the Physical Review journals through expert commentaries written by active researchers.
Physics features three kinds of articles:
Essays of approximately 1000–1500 words that focus on a single Physical Review paper or PRL letter and put this work into broader context.
Concise review articles (3000–4000 words in length) that survey a particular area and look for interesting developments in that field.
Staff-written distillations (200 words) of interesting and important papers each week.
