Journal of Chemical Physics

The Journal of Chemical Physics publishes concise and definitive reports of significant research in methods and applications of chemical physics. The Journal also publishes brief Communications of significant new findings, Perspectives on the latest advances in the field, and Special Topic issues. The Journal focuses on innovative research in experimental and theoretical areas of chemical physics, including spectroscopy, dynamics, kinetics, statistical mechanics, and quantum mechanics.

Chaos: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Nonlinear Science

Chaos: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Nonlinear Science is a peer-reviewed journal devoted to increasing the understanding of nonlinear phenomena and describing the manifestations in a manner comprehensible to researchers from a broad spectrum of disciplines. Chaos welcomes submission of original manuscripts on the full range of topics in the broadly interdisciplinary area of nonlinear science, which includes, among other topics:


Biomicrofluidics (BMF) is an online-only journal published by AIP Publishing to rapidly disseminate research in fundamental physicochemical mechanisms associated with microfluidic and nanofluidic phenomena. BMF also publishes research in unique microfluidic and nanofluidic techniques for diagnostic, medical, biological, pharmaceutical, environmental, and chemical applications.

Applied Physics Reviews

Applied Physics Reviews (APR) features review articles on important and current topics in experimental or theoretical research in applied physics or applications of physics to other branches of science and engineering. APR publishes the following types of review articles:

Focused Reviews: Short, timely reviews that cover recent advances in established fields or new and emerging areas of applied physics.
Reviews: Comprehensive reviews providing in-depth coverage of established areas of applied physics.

Applied Physics Letters

Applied Physics Letters (APL) features concise, up-to-date reports on significant new findings in applied physics. Emphasizing rapid dissemination of key data and new physical insights, APL offers prompt publication of new experimental and theoretical papers reporting applications of physics phenomena to all branches of science, engineering, and modern technology.

Topics covered in APL are diverse and reflect the most important subjects in applied physics, including:

APL Photonics

The name APL Photonics is about values and community. “APL” stands for the values we share with our parent (Applied Physics Letters) and sister (APL Materials) journals - promoting significant advances and novel understandings in our fields through research reports that are driven forward by peer-review. As a new, open access journal for the photonics community, APL Photonics expands on these values and is the home for fundamental and applied multidisciplinary research anchored in photonics, and the platform for next-generation innovations in the field.

APL Materials

APL Materials features original, experimental research on significant topical issues within the field of materials science. In order to highlight research at the forefront of materials science, emphasis is given to the quality and timeliness of the work. The journal considers theory or calculation only if a significant experimental component is also included in a paper or if the work is timely and has been specially commissioned.

AIP Advances

AIP Advances is an open access journal publishing in all areas of physical sciences—applied, theoretical, and experimental. All published articles are freely available to read, download, and share. The journal prides itself on the belief that all good science is important and relevant. Our inclusive scope and publication standards make it an essential outlet for scientists in the physical sciences.
