Physical Review Letters (PRL),established in 1958, is a peer-reviewed, scientific journal that is published 52 times per year by the American Physical Society. As also confirmed by various measurement standards, which includes the Journal Citation Reports impact factor and the journal h-index proposed by Google Scholar, many physicists and other scientists consider Physical Review Letters one of most prestigious journals in the field ofphysics.

Physics Letters B ensures the rapid publication of important new results in nuclear and particle physics. Specialised editors are responsible for contributions in experimental nuclear physics, theoretical nuclear physics, experimental high-energy physics, theoretical high-energy physics, and astrophysics.


Applied Physics Letters is a weekly peer-reviewed scientific journal that is published by the American Institute of Physics. Its focus is rapid publication and dissemination of new experimental and theoretical papers regarding applications of physics in all disciplines of science, engineering, and modern technology. Additionally, there is an emphasis on fundamental and new developments which lay the groundwork for fields that are rapidly evolving.



Physical Review B: Condensed Matter and Materials Physics (also known as PRB) is a peer-reviewed, scientific journal, published by the American Physical Society (APS). The Editor of PRB is Laurens W. Molenkamp. It is part of the Physical Review family of journals.[1] The Editor in Chief of the APS journals is Gene D. Sprouse. PRB currently publishes over 6000 papers a year, making it one of the largest physics journals in the world.


 The original all-electronic, open-access optics journal, Optics Express (OpEx) is known for its rapid time to publication and high Impact Factor. OpEx publishes peer-reviewed articles that emphasize scientific and technology innovations in all aspects of optics and photonics.



Optics Letters (OL) provides rapid dissemination of new results in all areas of optics and photonics with short, original, peer-reviewed communications. The articles often describe research-in-progress, thus reflecting the leading edge in the "science of light." With an Impact Factor of 3.385, OL is among the top-ranked journals in the Optics category.

International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer is the vehicle for the exchange of basic ideas in heat and mass transfer between research workers and engineers throughout the world. It focuses on both analytical and experimental research, with an emphasis on contributions which increase the basic understanding of transfer processes and their application to engineering problems.

Applied Thermal Engineering is a peer-reviewed scientific journal publishing original articles concerning all aspects of the thermal engineering of advanced processes, including process integration, intensification, and development, together with the application of thermal equipment in conventional process plant, which includes its use for heat recovery.

Surface and Coatings Technology is an international archival journal publishing scientific papers on surface and interface engineering to modify and improve the surface properties of materials for protection in demanding contact conditions or aggressive environments, or for enhanced functional performance. Contributions range from original scientific articles concerned with applied research or direct applications of coatings, to invited reviews of current technology in specific areas.

Optics and Lasers in Engineering aims to provide an international forum for the interchange of information on the development and application of optical techniques and laser technology in engineering. Emphasis is placed on contributions dealing with the practical use of methods and devices, the evaluation of results and developments and enhancement of solutions and new theoretical foundations for experimental methods.

Applied Surface Science covers topics contributing to a better understanding of applications of surfaces,interfaces, and nanostructures . The journal is concerned with scientific research on the atomic and molecular level of material propeties, determined with multiple surface analytical techniques, as well as the processing and application of such structures.

Optics & Laser Technology aims to provide a vehicle for the publication of a broad range of high quality research and review papers in those fields of scientific and engineering research appertaining to the development and application of the technology of optics and lasers. Papers describing original work in these areas are submitted to rigorous refereeing prior to acceptance for publication.
