JAP Materials and APL Materials

Share this on social media:

The American Institute of Physics (AIP) plans to launch two new open-access journals later this year. The journals – JAP Materials and APL Materials – will be affiliated with two AIP 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.

As with the parent journals, articles will undergo a thorough peer review process overseen by an editor and an international team of associate editors and the journals will emulate their parent publications in scope, says AIP.

JAP Materials will provide in-depth coverage on the full breadth of research related to materials science, with a focus on significant new theoretical and experimental discoveries. APL Materials will feature original research on significant topical issues within the field of materials science, but as a letters journal it will also emphasise the timeliness of this research.
