Founded in 1971, this journal presents original and current research on all aspects of experimental, theoretical and computational physics from around the world.
The scope includes all fields from the traditional fundamental and applied physics disciplines (atomic, condensed matter, molecular, nuclear, optical, particle and statistical physics), as well as relevant topics of an interdisciplinary nature, such as biophysics, nonlinear dynamics and complex systems, to name but a few.
A particular focus of the journal is on invited review papers on hot topics that reflect the prominent role of physicists in or from Brazil.

This is an official publication of the Sociedade Brasileira de Física (SBF).
