AIP Publishing, a division of the American Institute of Physics (AIP), announces that it will start the New Year with new cover designs for its portfolio of leading journals. The coherent new look will give each journal a fresh, consistent appearance without altering any of the high-quality content that the physics community has relied on for years. It will begin rolling out the new designs in January 2012, starting with Applied Physics Letters, Journal of Applied Physics, and The Journal of Chemical Physics. The roll out will continue throughout the first quarter of 2012 based on the publishing cycle of each journal.
“In keeping with the continuing evolution of AIP Publishing as a distinct, highly visible and well-respected brand, we’re moving into 2012 with a fresh new design that unites our entire family of highly cited journals,” said Vice President of Publishing John Haynes.
The new look, which is already familiar to users of the publisher’s online journals, will make its debut with 2012 print editions of these AIP’s journals: Applied Physics Letters, Chaos, Journal of Applied Physics, The Journal of Chemical Physics, Journal of Mathematical Physics, Journal of Physical and Chemical Reference Data, Low Temperature Physics, Physics of Fluids, Physics of Plasmas, and Review of Scientific Instruments. The online-only journals — AIP Advances, Biomicrofluidics, Journal of Laser Applications, and Journal of Renewable and Sustainable Energy — also feature the same look on their homepages.
