Physica is a Dutch series of peer-reviewed, scientific journals of physics by Elsevier. It started out in 1921 as a journal of the Nederlandse Natuurkundige Vereniging (Netherlands Physical Society) that published mostly in Dutch. In 1934 it was taken over by the North-Holland publishing company, keeping the same name but with a new volume numbering. The single journal Physica was split in a three-part series in 1975 (Physica A, Physica B, Physica C). Physica D was created in 1980, and Physica E in 1998. It was published in Utrecht until 2007, and is now published in Amsterdam by Elsevier.
|Physica A: 2.132|
Physica B: 1.453
Physica C: 1.453
Physica D: 1.960
Physica E: 2.399 (2017)
Physica A: Statistical Mechanics and its ApplicationsEdit
Physica A was created in 1975 as a result of the splitting of Physica in 1975. It is concerned with statistical mechanics and its applications, particularly random systems, fluids and soft condensed matter, dynamical processes, theoretical biology, econophysics, complex systems, and network theory.
Physica A is published by Elsevier on a bimonthly basis (24 times per year).
Physica B: Condensed MatterEdit
Physica B was created in 1975 as a result of the splitting of Physica in 1975. It is concerned with condensed matter physics and its applications, particularly solid state and low-temperature physics. Some conference proceedings are published in special editions of Physica B.
Physica B is published by Elsevier on an at-least monthly basis (12 times per year, sometimes more).
Physica C: Superconductivity and its ApplicationsEdit
Physica C created in 1975 as a result of the splitting of Physica in 1975. It is a "rapid communications" type of journal, concerned with the topic superconductivity, superconductive materials, and connected phenomena.
Physica C is published by Elsevier, two or three times per month.
Physica D: Nonlinear PhenomenaEdit
Physica D is published by Elsevier on a bimonthly basis (24 times a year).
Physica E: Low-dimensional Systems and NanostructuresEdit
Physica E was created in 1998 as an expansion of the Physica series. It is concerned with nanostructures and thin films research, particularly the properties of quantum dots, quantum wells, quantum wires, and both bilayer and multilayer thin-film devices.
Physica E is published by Elsevier 10 times a year.
