What is ThePhysicist?
ThePhysicist is a science blog that provides and promotes information on scientific research and education. Apart from publishing posts, ThePhysicist also conducts online courses and provides free and paid questions and answers services. In simple words, ThePhysicist is an independent investigator in science with a specific vision and mission.
Every vision needs to be at the highest possible pedestal in terms of ideals, principles, passion and ethics. The vision of ThePhysicist is to establish itself as an online resources portal that offers everything in Physics to everyone. To consistently work on that vision, ThePhysicist has a well-defined mission statement.
To put it simply, the Mission of ThePhysicist is to work on its vision by serving the three identified categories among its intended audience: at the minimum, enthusiasts in Physics.
For the Researchers, ThePhysicist has a dedicated Research page that contains the following resource tools, with a lot more in the pipeline.
- Physics Research Engine (a customised Google search engine created to look for online content related to the key phrase among authentic and high impact journals, repositories of scholarly articles, news and blogs)
- Journals Index (a list of all the high impact and important research and review journals in Physics)
- arXiv Index (a list of all the branches of Physics)
- A list of recent posts in the ‘research’ category
ThePhysicist considers the Research page as a cornerstone page on the site and is in constant pursuit of making the page more useful by taking in direct and indirect feedback.
For the students of Physics, there is a dedicated Examinations page containing a list of the key competitive examinations covered by ThePhysicist, with the respective official information and links. Also provided are ThePhysicist Course Category Codes and Tags to make it a fluid experience for the students to understand which course to go for and which posts to look for. It is being emphasized here that ThePhysicist recommends the students to always refer to the official site for their respective examinations and use the resources on ThePhysicist only for guidance and coaching.
Ever-increasing resources and facilities are being offered both for free of charge as well as for a fee. ThePhysicist is committed to helping students prepare better in Physics for the following competitive exams in Physics such as NSEP, INPhO, IPhO, NSEA, INAO, IAO, NGPE, JAM, GATE, TIFR, NET, JEST, GRE Physics subject test and Advanced Placements Physics. Going forth help will also be provided to researchers working for a PhD.
ThePhysicist is currently working on building online courses in Physics meant for the aspirants of JEE (Advanced), JAM, GATE, JEST, TIFR, NET and JEST. Those courses and the supporting pages will soon come up on the blog menu.
For the enthusiasts, ThePhysicist offers many things for free, such as blog posts, news, a discussion forum. ThePhysicist also offers free guidance and assistance from experts if an enthusiast has a specific question or if they wish to turn into students or researchers.
