The aims of Advances in Physics: X are to demonstrate: 1. the connectivity of Physics, by which we mean the intellectual relationships between one branch of Physics and another; and 2. the pervasiveness of Physics, that is, the influence of Physics across (hence the “X”) the boundaries into other disciplines, including chemistry, materials science, engineering, biology, and medicine. Thus the journal promotes the centrality of Physics and physical measurement to modern science and technology, defending the discipline and revealing both its richness and its impact. The aims of APX are achieved through the Open Access, electronic publication of concise review articles, commissioned from leading experts and made available freely throughout the world.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Total Documents

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.
