The aim of Physics Comment is to disseminate news and recent developments in research and provoke discussion in the broad area of Physics. The wide application of the field means that interests and submissions will be welcomed on a wide range of topics including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Technology
  • International news
  • Recent research and innovation in physics
  • Advances Relevant to Physics
  • Advertisements (Rates)

This online magazine also welcomes research contributions on specific application areas including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Engineering
  • Manufacturing
  • Education and Training
  • Medicine
  • Telecommunications

Since some of the readers may be unfamiliar with the technical detail of the specific topics being discussed, emphasis will be placed on clear, well-written, and accessible articles which will appeal to a multidisciplinary audience. The magazine's audience includes those undertaking basic and applied physics research in either academia or industry, alongside the general public who take a keen interest in physics.

To complement the technical articles, the magazine will also accept shorter reports and news communications. Articles providing overviews of research laboratories or application of physics are particularly welcomed.

Physics Comment requires you, the reader, and you the physics enthusiast to contribute by submitting articles and news reports for the next issue of this magazine.
