African Physics Newsletter
The American Physical Society (APS) is pleased to announce the African Physics Newsletter, a new quarterly, electronic publication launching in early 2019, produced by and for African physicists, with editorial board members representing North, South, East, and West Africa. The publication will facilitate communication among physicists across Africa and highlight physics news and research from the continent to a broader international community.
The newsletter is open to all Africans and non-Africans and is free of charge. We invite all who are interested in African Physics to subscribe.
African physicists identified a need for a Pan-African communication vehicle through a survey on their needs and priorities conducted by the Physics in Africa Project—a joint effort of APS, the European Physical Society, the International Centre for Theoretical Physics, the UK Institute of Physics, and the South African Institute of Physics. The survey revealed that African physicists wished to have new communication vehicles for sharing physics news, events and interests from their respective countries with colleagues across the continent.
The first issue is expected in the first quarter of 2019 and will be supported by APS. We encourage you to subscribe at the link above. Please feel free to share this announcement with others that may wish to receive the African Physics Newsletter.
