APS Tip Sheet

APS issues a weekly “tip sheet” for reporters highlighting noteworthy research published in the Physical Review journals. Staff writers, freelancers, and students working for editorially independent news outlets are eligible to receive the tip sheet. Please complete the form on this page to subscribe.

APS Meetings

Journalists are invited to attend APS meetings free-of-charge (travel and lodging are not included). 

Embargo Policy

Unless otherwise noted, papers submitted to APS 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. On occasion, authors and editors will agree to use an embargo. In case of an embargo, the manuscript will not appear on the accepted paper list nor on any other public repository, such as a preprint server. APS will notify reporters via a separate tip sheet and provide copies of the paper upon request. The APS Press Office reserves the right to set embargoes at its sole discretion.

For Public Information Officers

APS regularly collaborates with the news offices of research institutions to publicize their scientists’ work. Publication dates for manuscripts accepted to APS journals are available upon request. Please contact the APS Press Office to coordinate media outreach.
