Exciting New Open-Access Journal

AIP Advances, a new open access journal featuring original, peer-reviewed, research in the applied physical sciences is off to a good start.  Published in online format only, the journal uses an author-pay model to help with expenses of publication.  According the journal’s Web site, “Authors publishing manuscripts in AIP Advances retain copyright and grant the publisher a license to publish under a Creative Commons agreement.”  This new publication is evidence of experimentation with new ways to disseminate scholarly information.  This is a highly innovative journal, as it permits rapid and low cost publication and quick dissemination of research findings.  It is published by the American Institute of Physics.   Take AIP Advances for a test drive.
