RSC Now Contributes Content to the AIP/APS Virtual Journals

Melville, NY, 16 December 2008 — One of the world’s pre-eminent scientific publishers has joined the Virtual Journals in Science and Technology (VJ) series, sponsored by the American Institute of Physics and the American Physical Society. Articles from the prestigious publications of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) are now accessible at virtualjournals.org.

“We're delighted to collaborate with AIP and APS on their Virtual Journals in Science & Technology series,” said Dr. John Haynes, Editorial Director, RSC Publishing. “Virtual publications are a forward-looking solution, allowing readers to search the ever-growing body of scientific literature quickly and effectively. Adding RSC's high-impact journals to the list of prestigious titles included in the Virtual Journals will bring our research articles to an even more diverse readership than before.”

AIP and APS currently publish Virtual Journal of Nanoscale Science and Technology, Virtual Journal of Biological Physics Research, Virtual Journal of Quantum Information, Virtual Journal of Ultrafast Science, and Virtual Journal of Applications of Superconductivity. Other Virtual Journals will be launched as warranted, focusing on new and developing fields that cut across a range of traditional publications. Eighteen publishers currently contribute source material to the Virtual Journals from more than 75 publications.

“We’re very pleased that RSC is contributing to the Virtual Journals, and we’re certain that the addition of their publications will make it easier for specialists in the fields covered by the series to stay current with the top-flight research published by the Society, said Mark Cassar, AIP Publisher, Journals and Technical Publications. “With an increasing amount of scientific and technological development becoming interdisciplinary, the Virtual Journals series has become a highly valuable cross-publisher research tool.”

Abstracts from each RSC journal can be found in the Virtual Journals without access restrictions. To view full-text articles, VJ users can follow the links to the articles in the source journals. Subscribers to each journal will thus have quick links to the journal’s full-text articles. Nonsubscribers can purchase articles from RSC’s website.
