Founded in 1967, this has been the principal journal for the publication of fundamental research on the Sun for five decades. All aspects of solar physics are reported on. Coverage ranges from the internal structure of the Sun and its evolution to the outer corona and solar wind in interplanetary space. Solar Physics publishes papers on solar-terrestrial physics and on stellar research as well, where they contribute directly to our understanding of the Sun.

Commonly used title abbreviations: SoPh, Solar Phys., Sol. Phys.
