The Journal of Chemical Physics Makes Communications Freely Available
Journal reinforces commitment to rapid dissemination of important new research
Melville, NY, June 25, 2009 – The American Institute of Physics announced that full-text papers published in the Communications section of its highly cited publication The Journal of Chemical Physics are now freely available. In addition, any Communication published since January of this year will also be freely accessible. The Communications section of The Journal of Chemical Physics features accelerated publication of brief papers on significant new findings.
"Communications are the most effective way to rapidly disseminate the latest breakthroughs, but to maximize their timeliness they need to be freely available," said Marsha Lester, Editor of The Journal of Chemical Physics. "We hope that by offering free access to JCP’s Communications section, we can help vital information to move faster and more easily.”
In a continuing effort to make Communications even more timely, JCP has made these papers available via RSS feeds, allowing for immediate notification of the important, brief reports published in the section. Communications, and indeed all news concerning the journal, can also be followed on Twitter at JCP@AIP_Publishing.
The Journal of Chemical Physics publishes concise and definitive reports of significant and innovative research in methods and applications of chemical physics to traditional areas such as spectroscopy, kinetics, statistical mechanics, and quantum mechanics. In addition, newer areas such as polymers, materials, surfaces/interfaces, information theory, and systems of biological relevance are of increasing importance.
