AIP releases new app for authors and reviewers — iPeerReview

“AIP releases new app for authors and reviewers – 04 Aug 2011

AIP Publishing, a division of the American Institute of Physics (AIP), has announced the release of its new app, iPeerReview. The new app allows authors and reviewers to use their iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices to access a broad range of information on papers submitted to any of AIP’s journals in Peer X-Press, AIP’s manuscript submission and review system.

Once logged in, users can perform a number of activities related to their papers. They can access a list of all active and completed papers, view the status history of a paper, view and save a paper in PDF format, email a paper, and link to a paper on AIP’s Scitation platform if it is in production or to Peer X-Press if it is under review.

When users access iPeerReview, they can either log in or access papers that they have previously saved to their device. The app will determine if they are an author, a reviewer, or both. In the event that they are both an author and a reviewer, iPeerReview will allow them to access both sets of papers under separate tabs.”

American Institute of Physics to secure all journals in dark archive


Melville, NY, June 12, 2009 – "The American Institute of Physics (AIP) announced today that online versions of all its journals will soon reside in the dark archive, CLOCKSS (Controlled Lots of Copies Keep Stuff Safe), a joint venture by libraries and publishers committed to ensuring long-term access to scholarly publications in digital format. CLOCKSS will make AIP content freely available in the event that AIP is no longer able to provide access." 

"CLOCKSS creates a secure, multi-site archive of web-published content that can be tapped into to provide ongoing access to researchers worldwide, free of charge."

"The American Institute of Physics is a federation of 10 physical science societies representing more than 135,000 scientists, engineers, and educators and is one of the world’s largest publishers of scientific information in physics. Offering full-solution publishing services for physics scientific societies and for similar organizations in science and engineering, AIP pursues innovation in electronic publishing of scholarly journals. AIP publishes its own

12 journals (many of which have the highest impact factors in their category); two magazines, including its flagship publication Physics Today; and the AIP Conference Proceedings. Its online publishing platform Scitation hosts nearly two million articles from more than 185 scholarly journals, and other publications of 28 learned society publishers."


Scitation Database Implements Web 2.0 Applications

“The American Institute of Physics (AIP) announced the release of content redesigns for six additional clients on AIP’s Scitation online publishing platform. Enhancements include the incorporation of Web 2.0 features, which allow bloggers to capture a preformatted citation that contains embedded code and plug it directly into their blog, without any re-keying. Users can use social bookmarking, which allow them to store and access bookmarks from any computer and to use tags to organize the bookmarks. A Research Toolkit is available where researchers can discover and connect with online workflow tools such as zotero and Google Notebook.”
