The Physical Society of Japan (JPS) is an organization of some 20,000 physicists, researchers as well as educators, and engineers. The primary purposes of the JPS are to publish research reports of its members and to provide its members with facilities relating to physics. The JPS was founded in 1877 as the first society in natural science in Japan.
The JPS publishes monthly physics research journals for international distribution: "JOURNAL OF THE PHYSICAL SOCIETY OF JAPAN", "PROGRESS OF THEORETICAL PHYSICS" and "JAPANESE JOURNAL OF APPLIED PHYSICS" (of which "Part 1 :Letters" is semi-monthly), the second and the third jointly with the Publication Office of the Progress of Theoretical Physics and the Japan Society of Applied Physics, respectively. The JPS publishes monthly organization journal "Butsuri" (meaning "physics" in Japanese) which carries articles (mostly in Japanese) ranging over reviews, discussions on current topics and notices from the society and its members as well. The other publications include "Proceedings" of conferences organized or supported by the JPS and a series of "Selected Papers in Physics".
