JRSE Creates New Website Optimized for Display on Mobile Devices
Melville, NY, August 14, 2009 – The American Institute of Physics (AIP) announced today that its newest publication, Journal of Renewable and Sustainable Energy (JRSE), can now be accessed from any mobile device equipped with a modern web browser. JRSE (jrse.aip.org) is an online journal covering all areas of renewable and sustainable energy through peer-reviewed papers, and featuring related top stories culled from major news outlets; interviews with newsmakers in the field; and a blog with insightful commentary on news, policy, and research.
"Mobile users want information very quickly, and they want it in a stripped-down version that loads quickly," said Larry Belmont, AIP's Manager of Scitation Development. "Keeping this in mind, we've provided them with a clean, streamlined design – absent the Flash content, huge images and difficult navigation."
Belmont went on to say, "We're driven by the belief that true accessibility means being able to deliver content that is just as usable on the mobile web as it is on the desktop web. We recognize that researchers on the go need fast, convenient access to JRSE, and now we've incorporated the technology that can deliver our content to them whenever and wherever they need it."
To make viewing on mobile devices easier, JRSE Mobile differs from the desktop edition in just a few ways:
American Institute of Physics is a federation of 10 physical science societies representing more than 135,000 scientists, engineers, and educators and is one of the world's largest publishers of scientific information in physics. Offering full-solution publishing services for scientific societies and for similar organizations in science and engineering, AIP is a leader in the field of electronic publishing of scholarly journals. AIP publishes 12 journals (some of which are the most highly cited in their respective fields), two magazines, including its flagship publication Physics Today; and the AIP Conference Proceedings series. Its online publishing platform Scitation hosts nearly two million articles from more than 185 scholarly journals and other publications of 28 learned society publishers.
