As for physics journals, I don't know exactly what Elsevier or AIP are using, but I do know that IOP uses MathTime. Unfortunately, they apparently tried to save money on buying just MathTime without MathTime Plus, so they resort to mixing Times/MathTime with CM bold math italics, CM calligraphic, and a few CM-style AMS symbols. Not exactly an example of high typographical standards, but apparently good enough to get away with for mass-producing two dozen or so print journals and the corresponding electronic journal articles. Cheers, Ulrik.
