Philosophical Magazine is currently in the 100th volume of its 8th series, but back when it first came out, it had a strange Latin quote on the cover, which, translated, reads:
According to Wikipedia, in 1814, Philosophical Magazine merged with A Journal of Natural Philosophy, Chemistry, and the Arts—another great title.A spider's web is not necessarily better because it produces its own threads. Nor does my building become inferior because I have tasted from others, as bees do.
—Justus Lipsius (Joost Lips) 1547-1606
Returning to the present, here are a few titles from the current issue to give you an idea of what gets published in Philosophy Magazine:
"Effects of irradiation temperature on Ne ion irradiated binary nickel-based alloys"
"Thermoelectric and optical properties of the SrS graphene by DFT"
"Electronic, optical and magnetic properties of PrXO3(X = V, Cr): first-principle calculations"
The publisher's description is:
"Publishes research on materials science and condensed matter physics, including physical, mechanical, optical and electrical properties."
I wonder how many philosophers pick it up expecting to find something different.
