"Physics Today" magazine, created in 1948, is the membership journal of The American Institute of Physics. It is provided to 130,000 members of twelve physics societies, including the American Physical Society. Over the last 60 years many famous physicists have written for the magazine, including Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, and Richard Feynman.

Although its content is scientifically rigorous and up to date, it is not a true scholarly journal in the sense of being a primary vehicle for communicating new results. Rather, it is more of a hybrid magazine that informs readers about important developments in the form of overview articles written by experts, shorter review articles written internally by staff, and also discusses the latest issues and events of importance to the science community such as science politics. The physics community's main vessel for new results is the Physical Review suite of scientific journals published by the American Physical Society and Applied Physics Letters published by the American Institute of Physics.

The magazine provides a historical resource of events associated to physics, including debunking the physics behind the so-called Star Wars program of the 1980s, and the state of physics in China and the Soviet Union during the 1950s and 70s.

[ Physics Today Online] presents the magazine's digital edition and in addition, extends the magazine's coverage of the physical sciences with links to related articles and news stories from around the web. It also features an online research center called research today, a tool that brings together the articles from a growing number of online publishing platforms including [ Scitation] and arXiv, a community job board and events calendar.
