Physics Journals

Below are journals in general science and physics. Impact factors are to the right, with the year of the impact factor in parentheses.


General Science Journals Impact Factors

There are only a handful of general science journals. Britain and the United States founded Nature and Science, and their respective science academies issue their proceedings.

Nature 32.182 (2004)
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences 10.452 (2004)
Proceedings of the Royal Society
      A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences 1.326 (2004)
      B: Biological Sciences 3.653 (2004)
Science 31.853 (2004)


Physics Journals Impact Factors

This list includes general and specialist physics journals. Interdisciplinary journals are included (e.g., biophysics, chemical physics) but not journals on topics outside the traditional scope of physics (e.g., fluid mechanics, materials science). Journals serving local communities or not in English are omitted.
