American Institute of Physics (AIP)


The Publisher of Choice for the Physical Sciences

Since 1930, AIP journals have provided the physics and related sciences community with world-class content.  Their value is evident from the number of researchers who cite our articles in their own research papers.  With a robust portfolio of journals, magazines and conference proceedings – and a steadfast advocate of open access, AIP Publishing is committed to sharing scientific advancement and enhancing global researcher productivity and excellence.

Exceptional Value for Researchers… and Librarians

Outstanding Quality

In 2014, with close to 383,000 total citations in the Applied Physics category, Applied Physics Letters and Journal of Applied Physics once again retained their positions as first and second, respectively.  They accounted for about one quarter of total citations in this category comprised of 143 journals. Also in 2014, The Journal of Chemical Physics continued to lead the Atomic, Molecular & Chemical Physics category in total citations with nearly 195,000 citations. In fact, just under one third of all citations from the 34 journals in this category are attributed to this single AIP Publishing journal.

Fast Publication Times

As the pace of international research accelerates, speed to publication is increasingly important to scientists in all disciplines. AIP Publishing has undertaken a series of strategic moves to reduce the time to publication for our peer-reviewed publications, with impressive results. In the span of two years, for example, the average number of days from submission-to-publication in the Journal of Applied Physics dropped from 141 in 2012 to 85 days in 2014, a 38% reduction.
