Portfolio by the numbers
Dedicated to the understanding and advancement of sciences such as Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science, Engineering, Computer Science and Chemistry, our extensive Physical Sciences portfolio spans books and journals, including renowned works such as the world renowned journals Advances in Physics, International Material Reviews and International Reviews in Physical Chemistry.
Advances in Physics
Advances in Physics publishes authoritative critical reviews by experts on topics of interest and importance to condensed matter physicists. It is intended for motivated readers with a basic knowledge of the journal’s field and aims to draw out the salient points of a reviewed subject from the perspective of the author.
International Materials Reviews
International Materials Reviews publishes peer-reviewed critical assessments of the literature on all aspects of materials science and engineering. Its aim is to provide timely, authoritative introductions to current thinking, developments and research in carefully selected topics. Leading edge reviews provide a concise overview of rapidly developing areas of the discipline, while maintaining the journal's high standard of rigour and critical assessment.
International Reviews in Physical Chemistry
International Reviews in Physical Chemistry publishes review articles describing frontier research areas in physical chemistry. Internationally renowned scientists describe their own research in the wider context of the field. The articles are of interest not only to specialists but also to those wishing to read general and authoritative accounts of recent developments in physical chemistry, chemical physics and theoretical chemistry.
Nuclear Science and Engineering
Nuclear Science and Engineering is the oldest peer-reviewed journal in its field. Our aim now is the same as when we started publication in 1956, which is to provide the leading source of information on fundamental and applied research in all scientific areas related to the peaceful use of nuclear energy for the benefit of all. We publish technical papers, technical notes, critical reviews, rapid communications, book reviews, and letters to the editor.
Nuclear Technology aims to be the leading international publication reporting new information on the practical application of nuclear science for peaceful uses. We publish technical papers, technical notes, critical reviews, rapid communications, book reviews, and letters to the editor on all phases of applications of fundamental research to nuclear technology.
Fusion Science and Technology
Fusion Science and Technology aims to be the leading source of timely information on peaceful uses of fusion research. We publish technical papers, technical notes, critical reviews, rapid communications, book reviews, and letters to the editor on fusion applications, design, and system studies.
Why String Theory?
An Entertaining and Enlightening Guide to the Who, What, and Why of String Theory, now also available in an updated reflowable electronic format compatible with mobile devices and e-readers. During the last 50 years, numerous physicists have tried to unravel the secrets of string theory. Yet why do these scientists work on a theory lacking experimental confirmation?
Continuing to offer an exceptionally clear, up-to-date treatment of the subject, Quantum Mechanics, Sixth Edition explains the concepts of quantum mechanics for undergraduate students in physics and related disciplines and provides the foundation necessary for other specialized courses. This sixth edition builds on its highly praised predecessors to make the text even more accessible to a wider audience.
Measurement and Detection of Radiation
A Sound Introduction to Radiation Detection and Measurement for Newcomers to Nuclear Science and Engineering Since the publication of the bestselling third edition, there have been advances in the field of radiation detection, most notably in practical applications. Incorporating these important developments, Measurement and Detection of Radiation, Fourth Edition provides the most up-to-date and accessible introduction to radiation detector materials, systems, and applications.
