Journal of the Physical Society of Japan (JPSJ)

The JPSJ has been disseminating excellent research articles covering all fields of physics for 76 years since its launch in 1946. Each monthly issue comprises letters and full papers on original research.  Invited papers on selected topics are also published occasionally.  Every month, the editorial board chooses a few Editor's Choice papers to recognize outstanding accomplishments, for which an expert in the field explains the word's significance in the JPSJ News and Comments.

Progress of Theoretical and Experimental Physics (PTEP)

Launched in 2012, the Progress of Theoretical and Experimental Physics (PTEP) succeeded Progress of Theoretical Physics (PTP), which was founded by Hideki Yukawa in 1946 and had distributed a number of revolutionary papers in theoretical physics.  While PTP is concerned mainly with theoretical physics, PTEP is actively involved in publishing papers on experimental physics, including particle physics, nuclear physics, astrophysics, and beam physics.    The monthly issues consist of letters and papers on original research, as well as occasional invited papers and special sections.  PTEP is a fully open access and online-only journal that anyone can read free of charge.

JPS Conference Proceedings

The Physical Society of Japan has launched a new open access journal, JPS Conference Proceedings (abbreviation: JPS Conf. Proc.) in 2014. It provides a fast publication of proceedings of an international conference, workshop, summer school or symposium, consisting of peer-reviewed articles.

JPS Hot Topics

To widely disseminate the works published in JPSJ, PTEP, and JPS Conf. Proc., JPS launched "JPS Hot Topics" in March 2021, in which hot topics of research papers published in these journals are introduced. In doing so, they are presented in an intelligible manner, even for graduate students and non-specialized researchers across the world, using video presentations in some cases.
