The American Journal of Physics is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published by the American Association of Physics Teachers devoted to the educational and cultural aspects of physics. It is notable for its entertaining and accessible style.

The Journal was established in 1933; the current editor is Jan Tobochnik, professor at Kalamazoo College.

Editorial policy for the journal explicitly specifies that the subject matter should be of interest in an educational setting. The editorial policy states:

  • Contributions should treat subjects of genuine value and interest to physics teachers and students. They should significantly aid the process of learning physics and not be simply a display of cleverness and erudition. Highly specialized contributions are not encouraged. Topics from all fields of physics and neighboring disciplines are appropriate; however, the mere solution of another physical problem, of which there are many, seldom constitutes an acceptable contribution. Manuscripts on topics that largely parallel those already available in textbooks and monographs and that differ from them primarily in the domain of taste rather than coverage are not suitable contributions.
