APS Meetings

Reporters and public information officers with valid APS credentials may register for most APS meetings at no-cost (travel and lodging are not included). To request APS press credentials, please complete the form on this webpage.

If you already have APS press credentials, please log in to your APS account before registering for a meeting on its website. Visit the APS meeting calendar to find upcoming meetings. Press releases and other press materials for the meetings are available in the APS newsroom.

Embargo Policy

Unless otherwise noted, papers submitted to the Physical Review journals are not embargoed. The titles and abstracts of most accepted manuscripts are listed on each journal’s website. Full-text PDFs are available to reporters upon request.

Occasionally, authors and editors will agree to use an embargo. In such cases, the manuscript will not appear on the accepted paper list or on any other public repository, including preprint servers. The APS Press Office reserves the right to set embargoes at its sole discretion.

Access to APS Journals

Journalists and members of the National Association of Science Writers and the Society for Environmental Journalists may receive complimentary access to the Physical Review journals. To register:

  1. Create an account at https://journals.aps.org/signup
  2. Email media@aps.org with the subject line “Press Access to APS Journals.” Please include your full name, username, and email address used to create your account in step one in the body of the email.

Once we verify your status as a journalist, we will grant complimentary access for one year. Journalists may request a renewal by emailing media@aps.org.

For Public Information Officers

APS collaborates with press teams at research institutions to publicize research that is published in the Physical Review journals or presented at APS meetings. Publication dates, manuscript copies, and complimentary registration to most APS meetings are available upon request. Please email media@aps.org to coordinate media outreach.
