Physics-Uspekhi (Advances in Physical Sciences) is a scientific journal established in 1918 in Russia. The English version of the journal has been in publication since 1958. The journal’s founder, Eduard Shpolsky, was editor-in-chief from 1918 until his death in 1975.
The journal covers all topics of modern physics. It publishes long review papers which are supposed to generalize and summarize previously published results, making them easier to use and to understand.
Nobel prize winner Vitaly Ginzburg was appointed editor-in-chief in 1998. In his 2006 Nobel autobiography, Ginzburg called Physics-Uspekhi “a good and useful journal” and credited its “maintenance of the highest level” to long-term editorial manager M. S. Aksentyeva.
The journal is indexed in the following databases: Science Citation Index, Current Contents, INSPEC, Physics Abstracts, Chemical Abstracts, Google Scholar, Scopus, Chemical Abstracts Service, Compendex, INIS Atomindex (International Nuclear Information System), and NASA Astrophysics Data System.
