The American Institute of Physics (AIP) is opening an office in Beijing, China. This is the first part of a multi-phase plan to expand globally, says the learned society.

According to AIP, Beijing was the logical first step because China is second only to the USA as the largest source of scientific papers submitted to many top physics journals.

'With the rapid rise of China as a major force in science and technology, AIP has been considering ways to partner and engage with China's scientific community in the many aspects of scholarly publishing and the broader distribution of scientific knowledge in all forms,' said John Haynes, AIP vice president for publishing.
