Melville, NY, October 1, 2010 — The American Institute of Physics (AIP) (aip.org) is pleased to announce the signing of a new partnership agreement. This latest arrangement establishes AIP as co-Publisher, with the Chinese Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (CSTAM), of the new journal Theoretical and Applied Mechanics Letters (TAML). The journal will launch in January.
"There has literally been an explosion in the amount of high-quality research being published by Chinese scientists in recent years,” said Robert Harington, Publisher, AIP Partnerships. "We're gratified that by forming partnerships with societies such as CSTAM, that AIP can bring its extensive STM publishing experience to bear in service of this research. That means disseminating results more rapidly—and with greater online functionality—to more scientists and engineers worldwide.”
TAML will publish short, original articles in all areas of theoretical and applied mechanics, as well as in engineering-related fields, such as aerospace, energy, materials, and biomedical, mechanical, coastal, civil and hydraulic engineering. Two of the most influential scientists in international mechanics will serve as Co-Editors‒Professor Jiachun Li, Institute of Mechanics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Prof. Yonggang Huang, Northwestern University.
"We are very pleased to launch a new journal, jointly published by the Chinese Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics and the American Institute of Physics, a leading international publisher of physical science research,” said Prof. Li Jiachun, President of the Chinese Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics and Editor-in-Chief of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics Letters. "AIP's involvement will help to quickly establish the journal's quality and facilitate communications between Chinese scientists and the rest of the world.”
