From the history of physics

50 years of JETP Letters

National Research Centre Kurchatov Institute, pl. akad. Kurchatova 1, Moscow, 123182, Russian Federation

This paper briefly traces the 50-year history of the journal Pis'ma v Zhurnal Eksperimental'noi i Teoreticheskoi Fiziki (JETP Letters), whose first issue was published on 1st April 1965. The journal is intended for a wide range of physicists as a fast publication channel for short communications on new, highest significance, highest priority results from research in all areas of experimental and theoretical physics. Today, the journal celebrates numerous important contributions to the development of physics both in Russia and worldwide. Over a historically short period, JETP Letters developed into a highly authoritative and influential source for physicists engaged in wide range of fields. Due to the wise and well timed editorial policy, the journal continues to retain its leadership position despite the difficulties the entire science periodical literature — and indeed the whole of science — currently experience in Russia.
