Review Publications

Hep Reviews
SPIRES' guide to the Review Literature in HEP, reviewed and compiled by SPIRES database staff.   The guide indexes by topic the review papers that have a significant number of citations in the SPIRES-HEP database. These papers include all of those with at least 100 citations by June 2004, but other papers are added as well.  The Guide is updated annually.
Living Reviews in Relativity
A peer-reviewed solely online journal covering all areas of relativity. Provided as a free service to the scientific community by the Max-Planck-Institut fur Gravitationsphysik. Published in yearly volumes, although articles appear throughout the year. Hyperlinks are kept checked and active and reviews are updated frequently.
Net Advance of Physics
A free electronic service providing review articles and tutorials in an encyclopedic format. Covers all areas of physics. Includes e-prints, book announcements, full text of electronic books, and other resources with hypertext links when available. Welcomes contributions of original review articles.
Physics Reports
A review section for Physics Letters A and Physics Letters B. Each report deals with one subject. The reviews are specialized in nature, more extensive than a literature survey but normally less than book length. Also incorporates Computer Physics Reports.
Reports on Progress in Physics
Covers all areas of physics and is published monthly. All papers are free for 30 days from the date of online publication.
Reviews of Modern Physics
Published quarterly, it includes traditional scholarly reviews and shorter colloquium papers intended to describe recent research of interest to a broad audience of physicists.
