AIP Offers Sneak Peek of Two Future Materials Science Journals
JAP Materials and APL Materials to join the ranks of AIP's premier journals
Melville, NY, April 10, 2012 — Two new open-access journals will join the distinguished ranks of publications produced by the American Institute of Physics (AIP) later this year. The journals – JAP Materials and APL Materials – will be affiliated with AIP's two premier applied physics journals, Journal of Applied Physics (JAP) and Applied Physics Letters (APL), and will feature research on materials, their functions, and their potential applications.
"There has been huge growth in the number of materials science submissions to JAP and APL over the last few years," says Mark Cassar, AIP publisher. "These new journals will be important additions to the existing body of research publications and will respond to the needs of researchers. They will not only expand AIP's already well-known and trusted sources of high-quality research information but they will also help authors to share their findings and get the exposure and recognition their works deserve."
The American Institute of Physics (AIP) is an organization of 10 physical science societies, representing more than 135,000 scientists, engineers, and educators. As one of the world's largest publishers of scientific information in physics, AIP employs innovative publishing technologies and offers publishing services for its Member Societies. AIP's suite of publications includes 15 journals, 3 of which are published in partnership with other organizations; magazines, including its flagship publication Physics Today; and the AIP Conference Proceedings series. Through its Physics Resources Center, AIP also delivers valuable services and expertise in education and student programs, science communications, government relations, career services for science and engineering professionals, statistical research, industrial outreach, and the history of physics and other sciences.
