About

What is it?

physicsfocus is an online space for the physics community to read about and comment on issues that concern them.

That could mean anything from musings on a scientific finding to thoughts on physics education, science policy, or the a discussion of the physics behind a topic in the news.

There’s no advertising, so who funds it?

physicsfocus is funded and curated by the Institute of Physics (IOP) but our bloggers are free to write about whatever they want.

We want to promote physics, not anything else, so you’ll see no ads here.

Why does it exist?

We want to give  people who are passionate about physics the opportunity to air their views and engage with the community and keep you up to date on the latest goings on within physics.

We want to help convey the excitement of physics and give people who are interested great reading material.

Who contributes?

The physicsfocus team is comprised of nine regular bloggers –  a collective of passionate physicists from a wide range of backgrounds – plus an assortment of occasional contributors.

They are all free to write about whatever they like. But we don’t want this to be one way. We hope our authors compel our readers to share their thoughts below the line.

Just be sure to take a look at our community standards before you post.
