A New Application lets Researchers Download and Store AIP Journal Articles to their iPhone or iPod Touch
Melville, NY, October 8, 2009 — Journal articles on various topics, ranging from applied and chemical physics to renewable energy, are now available on Apple iPhone and Apple iPod touch devices. The American Institute of Physics (AIP) (www.aip.org), one of the world's largest publishers of information in the physical sciences and a leader in the field of electronic publishing, announced the launch today of its new mobile e-Reader application, iResearch. iResearch was developed to provide physicists, engineers, scientists, and students, with mobile access to valuable physics journal content. Users may access iResearch via the Apple iTunes store to download the application for version 3.0 and higher.
"iResearch is an important part of AIP's strategy to bring our content closer to end users and provide researchers worldwide with access to information wherever and whenever they need it," said James Wonder, Director of Emerging Technology, American Institute of Physics. "This new application further reinforces AIP's position as a leading technology provider in STM publishing, and showcases the potential of our new Scitation C3 hosting platform infrastructure."
In addition to readily accessing AIP content through a Wi-Fi network or cellular connection, iResearch enables users to optionally save files in PDF format on their iPhone or iPod touch for offline viewing.
Scitation C3 allows AIP to load its journal articles directly, combining XML content, documents, and books into a single, centralized repository. This has helped the Institute avoid costly and time-consuming content transformations. AIP can now react with even greater agility when creating new applications like iResearch, which extend the value of its information by making it accessible to users in a wide range of delivery options.
The journals available in the iResearch application include: Applied Physics Letters, Biomicrofluidics, Chaos, Journal of Applied Physics, The Journal of Chemical Physics, Journal of Mathematical Physics, Journal of Physical and Chemical Reference Data, Journal of Renewable and Sustainable Energy, Low Temperature Physics, Physics of Fluids, Physics of Plasmas, and Review of Scientific Instruments.
