    Check out the Physics Arxiv at:


    for developing trends, exploratory physics and unpublished articles.

    For more peer reviewed articles try Nature magazine.

    Physics Today magazine is also good. It's published by the American Institute of Physics. The articles aren't research-journal type articles such as you find on arXiv. They're news- or introductory-type articles about current (or sometimes historical) topics, written by specialists for physicists in general (rather than for other specialists in the same field). I've subscribed to it ever since I was an undergraduate, first as a member of the Society of Physics Students, then as a member of the American Physical Society.

    It's also available online, but I think you have to either be a personal subscriber or your university library has to have an institutional subscription:

    It seems that Physics Today is similar to Phys.org in the way that it gives you a brief introduction of a certain project and if you are interested there are some papers you can read (though some of those are free).
    Thank you for your comment.
