Welcome to a new look for Physics World

28 Feb 2018 Susan Curtis

After months of activity behind the scenes, we are incredibly excited to reveal our stunning new website. We hope you like it as much as we do.

Our key motivation throughout the relaunch project has been to make it easier for you to discover the content of most interest to you. The striking new design can be enjoyed on any device you happen to be using, while improved navigation places renewed emphasis on the applied and interdisciplinary fields that are driving progress in such mission-critical areas as healthcare, the environment, and commercial and industrial development.

To help you explore our content, we have introduced 15 subject topics that span both core physics disciplines and emerging interdisciplinary fields. Whether your interest lies in condensed matter or biophysics and bioengineering, science careers or business innovation, you’ll find all the relevant news and commentary in a single place on our website.

We have also launched a series of special collections that allow you to delve deeper into some of the most exciting and thought-provoking topics from across the scientific spectrum. Two of these collections are already available – one on the emerging field of multimessenger astronomy, and the other on the opportunities and challenges faced by physicists in their working lives – and more will be added in the coming weeks and months.

One thing hasn’t changed: our commitment to providing daily coverage of the most exciting research breakthroughs and technology innovations, as well as the key developments that affect the global scientific community. Through the site you can also enjoy a rich programme of multimedia and longer form articles, including:

  • Videos and webinars that offer new ways to explain and explore the latest science. Our podcast series will also be available very shortly
  • Analysis and feature articles that take a deeper look at the stories behind the headlines
  • Careers articles that offer a unique insight into the experiences of scientists working in both industry and academia
  • Expert opinions and reviews of the best new science books and cultural events

Tell us what you think

We’ll be continuing to update the site over the next few months, and we’ll keep you posted on all the new changes as they are rolled out.

As part of that continuing development, we’re really keen to know what you think about the new site. You can use the rating tool to provide an instant reaction, or please contact us at to let us know your views.
