Physics Physique физика

The American Physical Society has made the small journal Physics Physique физика freely available online. The journal published fewer than 100 articles during the period 1964-1968 in four volumes. In their Editorial Foreword, founding editors P. W. Anderson and B. T. Matthias explain that the experimental journal aimed to “alleviate the increasing problems of the communication of science.” During its brief run, the journal published papers by many notable physicists, including Gell-Mann, de Gennes, Ne’eman, Anderson, Abrikosov, and others. Perhaps the most significant paper published in the journal is J. S. Bell’s “On the Einstein Podolsky Rosen paradox.”
