science news

Our science news programme represents a key part of our mission to communicate world-class research and innovation to the widest possible audience.

Not only is Physics World the membership magazine of the Institute of Physics, it also represents a wide portfolio of science journalism that promotes a collective conversation to engage scientific audiences across borders and across disciplines. Our objective is to help scientists promote themselves, their teams and their research to millions of researchers around the world.

We aim to provide you with thought-provoking coverage from a diverse range of subjects, as shown by the expanded scope on Physics World and our partnerships with CERN and ESRF.

Physics World

The Physics World portfolio is a collection of digital and print resources for the global scientific community. Covering a wider range of science news than ever before, we now extensively cover topics from a broad range of disciplines including medical physics, materials science, and environment and energy.
