AIP Publishing Partners with MathJax

Melville, NY, November 28, 2011 — AIP Publishing, a division of the American Institute of Physics, has become a MathJax partner by providing major funding to the MathJax initiative, and now offers MathJax to render mathematics in its online journals. MathJax is an open-source JavaScript display engine that produces high-quality math in all modern browsers, without plugins or other special set-up requirements.

"Both our reader and author communities will benefit greatly from AIP's use and support of MathJax," said AIP Director of Business Development Terry Hulbert. "The MathJax project is an important step forward, not only in the clarity with which it displays math, but in the usability and accessibility of math and online learning. AIP is proud to support the MathJax project."

"AIP's use and financial support of MathJax is a huge boost to the project," said Robert Miner, MathJax Project Director. "This will significantly increase awareness and hopefully attract more support for MathJax."

MathJax lets users copy equations from AIP's online journal articles and paste them directly into Word and LaTeX documents, science blogs, MathType, and research wikis. Equations can also be copied and pasted into calculation software like Maple, Mathematica, and others. MathJax supports the use of STIX fonts, which will improve MathJax's speed when rendering mathematics.

AIP is seeking feedback from the scientific community on the utility of MathJax as it continues to develop the service. To see MathJax in action, visit the 50th Anniversary issue of the Journal of Mathematical Physics. Every article in the issue is freely available. Select read online for any article, and once in the HTML view, go to the navigation bar and turn on MathJax.
