jIAPS 2018

This year’s edition of jIAPS, the journal of the International Association of Physics Students, is now available.

It contains events reports from our members. If a scientific trip to another country seems appealing, read these to see in-depth descriptions of what the events were like by the participants themselves. The majority are set to be re-held again this academic year. Email events@iaps.info for more info on a specific event.

The next part of the contents are introductions from our new members. We had articles from 6 new members this year, from the Hellenic Society of NC Greece to Local Committee SPHERE in the Philippines and WINAK of LC Antwerp. These are useful to read to see how physics societies around the world handle becoming IAPS members and for info on their unique structure and events. If you are interested in becoming an IAPS member by forming either a National or Local committee, you can contact members@iaps.info for advice and guidance.

The second part of jIAPS is the scientific articles. Every year we hold an article contest to give students practice of writing scientific articles based on their current research or science interests. This is open to all levels of study and the first prize is a free trip to our conference, ICPS.

I would like to give a special thanks to our Editor-in-Chief Ewelina Nowak for doing such an excellent job of compiling this year’s jIAPS and for all of her hard work. I would also like to thank the editors (Augustin Orešković and James Kneller) for their contribution. If you would like to be on the editorial team of next year’s edition, email pr@iaps.info.

So please do enjoy the attached jIAPS article!
