Acta Physica Polonica was established in 1920 by the Polish Physical Society, under the name Comptes Rendus des Séances de la Société Polonaise de Physique (Sprawozdania i Prace Polskiego Towarzystwa Fizycznego). In 1932 the Editorial Committee decided to change journal's title to Acta Physica Polonica. From this time the journal appeared regularly until the outbreak of the World War II.
After the War, the journal was reestablished in Kraków and the first volume was printed in 1947. The journal was published initially as a quarterly and finally, since 1961, as a monthly. In 1970, Acta Physica Polonica was split into two series, A and B, the first one covering as of today, general physics, atomic and molecular physics, condensed matter, optics and quantum optics, quantum information, biophysics and applied physics, and the second one publishing articles in general and mathematical physics, particle physics and field theory, nuclear physics, theory of relativity and astrophysics, and statistical physics.
We have collected all issues of Acta Physica Polonica published since 1932 until 1969. We hope that the availability of these archival volumes will be of interest to our readers and researchers of the history of physics.
