Foundations of Physics

Foundations of Physics is a monthly-published journal devoted to the conceptual bases and fundamental theories of modern physics and cosmology, emphasizing the logical, methodological, and philosophical premises of modern physical theories and procedures. The journal publishes results and observations based on fundamental questions from all major fields of physics: quantum mechanics, quantum field theory, special relativity, general relativity, string theory, M-theory, cosmology, thermodynamics, statistical physics, and quantum gravity.

The journal has been in publication since 1970. The founding editor were Henry Margenau and Wolfgang Yourgrau. The current editor-in-chief is Nobel laureate Gerard ‘t Hooft, who was instated in January 2007. At that stage it absorbed the Foundations of Physics Letters, which had been published as a separate journal since its foundation in 1988.

Several notable laureates throughout the years have worked on the editorial board for the Foundations of Physics, including: Louis de Broglie, Robert H. Dicke, Murray Gell-Mann, Abdus Salam, Ilya Prigogine and Nathan Rosen.

The journal is abstracted and indexed in numerous databases, including: Academic OneFile, Academic Search, Astrophysics Data System, Current Abstracts, Current Contents/Physical Chemical and Earth Sciences, Digital Mathematics Registry, EBSCO, Expanded Academic, Google Scholar, HW Wilson, INIS, Atomindex, Inspec International, Bibliography of Book Reviews, International Bibliography of Periodical Literature, ISIS, Current Bibliography of the History of Science, Journal Citation Reports/Science Edition Mathematical Reviews, OmniFile, Science Citation Index, Science Select, Scopus, Simbad Astronomical Database, SPIRES, Summon by Serial Solutions, Zentralblatt MATH
