The American Institute of Physics has announced several news concerning pricing and content. I will simply copy here the content of the lenghty but news-worthy email.
The American Institute of Physics is pleased to announce that our 2007 institutional subscription rates are now available. Please visit
to view 2007 prices for the following publications:
AIP Conference Proceedings
Applied Physics Letters
Computing in Science & Engineering (co-published with IEEE Computer Society) Journal of Applied Physics The Journal of Chemical Physics Journal of Physical & Chemical Reference Data (co-published with NIST) Journal of Mathematical Physics Low Temperature Physics Physics of Fluids Physics of Plasmas Physics Today Review of Scientific Instruments
Prices are also now available for the following package subscription options:
AIP Archival Plus
Physics of Fluids/Physics of Plasmas
Please note that all prices are subject to change.
There are also several new offerings and important developments we’d like to alert you to.
Physics Today Offers Online Access to Institutions
Physics Today subscribers will have the option to access an online backfile with their 2007 subscription for an additional US$200 fee. Institutional subscribers who choose this option will have access from 2001 to all but the most recent 12 months of the magazine; current contents remain a benefit to member subscribers. The PT backfile is included in the AIP Archival and AIP Archival Plus combination subscriptions; the backfile is also available as a separate online-only subscription. AIP plans to digitize all issues back to the magazine’s launch in 1948, eventually creating a complete Physics Today digital archive.
AIP to Launch First Open Access Journal by January 2007
AIP introduces Biomicrofluidics, the first title in its new series, AIP Access X-Press. This will be a series of Open Access, online-only journals, featuring rapid publication times.
Two AIP Journals Offer Selected Content in Separate Formats
Beginning in January 2007, JCP: Biochemical Physics will provide, in an online-only format, all articles from the Journal of Chemical Physics (JCP) that focus on biochemical-related topics. Applied Physics Reviews, long a distinct section within Journal of Applied Physics (JAP), will also have separate online-only distribution in 2007. (Subscribers to JCP and JAP will continue to receive all this content with their regular subscriptions.) Applied Physics Reviews includes a backfile of review articles back to 1980.
New Topical Collections Available from AIP Conference Proceedings
Previously available only as print standing orders, the topical subseries within the AIP Conference Proceedings program will now be available as separate online-only subscriptions. Subseries include Accelerators and Beams; Astronomy & Astrophysics; Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics; Nuclear & High Energy Physics, Mathematical and Statistical Physics; Plasma Physics; and Materials Physics & Applications. Each series includes all published content from 2000 to the present.
AIP Revises Tiered Pricing System
In 2007, AIP will move to a six-tier pricing system, in part to reduce the large price differences between the highest tiers in the current system. Some accounts from Tier 4 will be moved to the new Tier 5, while all accounts previously in Tier 5 will be relabeled as the new Tier 6. Librarians at affected institutions will be notified directly.
Reference links are being added to the backfiles of AIP archival journals. In 2007, all abstracts back to 1991 will include these links to cited articles.
If you have a question regarding your institution’s AIP tier assignment, or about the prices posted, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-800-344-6902.
We look forward to serving you in the new subscription year.
