Aims and scope

The focus of the journal is critical reviews that are relevant to condensed matter physicists. Each review is intended to present the author's perspective. Readers are expected to have a fundamental knowledge of the subject. These reviews are sometimes complemented by a "Perspectives" section which publishes shorter articles that may be controversial, with the intention of stimulating debate.[4] The intended audience consists of physicists, materials scientists, and physical chemists working in universities, industry, and research institutes.[4][6]

Broad, interdisciplinary coverage includes topics ranging from condensed matter physics, statistical mechanics, quantum information, cold atoms, and soft matter physics to biophysics.[4]

Impact factor and ranking

The impact factor for Advances in Physics 18.062 in 2013, ranking it first in the discipline of condensed matter physics.
