Launched in 2019, the African Physics Newsletter (APN) is a quarterly, electronic publication about physics in Africa as gathered, and reported by, an Editorial Board of African physicists representing various regions of the continent. APS has published the newsletter since it’s inception.
The newsletter was created in response to physicists and physics institutions across the continent who expressed an interest in a Pan-African physics communication vehicle to foster connections among physicists residing in Africa, diaspora communities, and the broader physics community. Surveys conducted by the Physics in Africa project—an undertaking of APS, UK Institute of Physics, European Physical Society, International Centre for Theoretical Physics, and South African Institute of Physics—revealed this need as gaps in communication can often exist among these communities.
