Oxford, February, 2013

Taylor & Francis is delighted to be joining the community of open access (OA) publishers that are part of OASPA. OASPA represents the interest of OA publishers globally within scientific and technical disciplines; advancing OA models, advocacy, education, and innovation within the field.

"We fully support the objectives of OASPA in developing tools and standards to support OA publishing, and facilitating information exchange within the community”, remarked Vicky Gardner, Open Access Publisher.

Taylor & Francis offers a range of exciting Open Access options to provide authors flexibility and variety when they choose to publish research with us:

Taylor & Francis and Routledge Open
is a suite of high-quality and rigorously reviewed pure open access journals, helmed by internationally-acclaimed editors to ensure their calibre.
Taylor & Francis and Routledge Open Select offer authors or funders the option to make an article fully and permanently open access online in one of our subscription-based journals upon payment of an article publishing charge (APC).

Authors publishing in either programme will benefit from rapid online publication, rigorous peer review and the high levels of customer care Taylor & Francis provides to all authors.
”We are enormously pleased to be part of OASPA and see it as a way to forge sustainable OA publishing routes that will be of benefit to the global research communities across the whole gamut of subject areas”, said David Green, Global Publishing Director of Taylor & Francis Journals.

American Institute of Physics forms AIP Publishing LLC to sharpen focus on scholarly publishing

Posted By Administration, Thursday 7 February 2013
Updated: Tuesday 5 February 2013

The American Institute of Physics (AIP) announces the formation of AIP Publishing LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary. The purpose of AIP Publishing LLC is to support the scientific and educational mission of the AIP through scholarly publishing activities in the physical and related sciences.

The LLC’s board will include experienced publishing experts to enable the publishing group to adapt quickly to changes in the marketplace in which it operates and to plan for the future in a rapidly changing environment. AIP Publishing LLC will focus on expanding its publishing of the best research in the physical sciences to deliver greater value to scientists, students, libraries and other subscribers with an interest in the physical and related sciences.

John S. Haynes, previously AIP vice president for publishing, will lead the new subsidiary as its chief executive officer. "With a comprehensive range of top-cited journals," remarked Haynes, "the creation of AIP Publishing LLC places the organization in an excellent, strategic position to deliver even more benefit to global researchers whilst continuing to provide great value to library customers worldwide. We will also continue to strive to serve physical sciences organizations, including AIP’s Member Society publishing partners, and help them to advance their missions.”

"When AIP's Member Societies created AIP more than 80 years ago, the institute devoted its attention to the development of physics as a field of human activity and to the economy of publishing physics journals,” said Louis Lanzerotti, chair of the AIP Governing Board and chair of the LLC. "Since then, AIP has grown in many important ways. It feeds the newswires with accurate and interesting science news, introduces students to the larger science community, tracks our community’s demographics, education and career trends, and curates history of the physical sciences.” He continued, "The Governing Board found that AIP’s publishing operations now required its own path for growth and development.”

The headquarters of AIP Publishing LLC remains in Melville, New York, and all previous contact information (including mailing address, telephone, email and web links) remains unchanged.

About AIP

The American Institute of Physics is an organization of 10 physical science societies, representing more than 135,000 scientists, engineers, and educators. Through its Physics Resources Center, AIP delivers valuable services and expertise in education and student programs, science communications, government relations, career services for science and engineering professionals, statistical research in physics employment and education, industrial outreach, and the history of physics and allied fields. AIP publishes the flagship magazine, Physics Today, and is also home to Society of Physics Students and the Niels Bohr Library and Archives.

About AIP Publishing LLC

AIP Publishing LLC provides the global physical science community with a comprehensive collection of highly cited peer reviewed scientific information. Accessed by researchers at nearly 4,000 institutions worldwide, AIP Publishing's portfolio of 17 journals includes prestigious titles such as Applied Physics Letters, Journal of Applied Physics and The Journal of Chemical Physics, and the AIP Conference Proceedings series. AIP Publishing also publishes on behalf of several of AIP's Member Societies and other publishing partners.

Elsevier Launches New Journal: Journal of Unconventional Oil and Gas Resources

Posted By Administration, Thursday 17 January 2013

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, is pleased to announce the launch of a new journal, Journal of Unconventional Oil and Gas Resources (JUOGR).

JUOGR is to publish world-class science focusing on recent advances in knowledge and practices in the area of evaluation, development and management of unconventional resources for researchers and practicing engineers. The journal aims to bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and field development of unconventional resources, such as tight gas, shale gas, liquid rich shales, tight oil, coalbed methane, gas hydrate, etc.

Journal of Unconventional Oil and Gas Resources will be edited by Dr. John Yilin Wang from Pennsylvania State University, supported by a distinguished board of subject editors including leading experts in the field of petroleum geology, geophysics, and engineering.

"One of the global challenges is to meet the increased energy demands for our growing population and our high standards of living. Exploration and development of unconventional resources is a key to solution," said Dr. Wang.

"The impact and need for unconventional resources is only predicted to grow in the future," added Bethan Keall, Publishing Director Earth and Planetary Sciences at Elsevier. "With the launch of the Journal of Unconventional Oil and Gas Resources, Elsevier aims to stimulate and support research in this exciting and important new field of science by providing a unique and specialized outlet."

Journal of Unconventional Oil and Gas Resources will publish four volumes in 2013. For more information or to submit a paper, go to:

Universal properties of mythological networks

Posted By Administration, Thursday 26 July 2012

This article from Pádraig Mac Carron and Ralph Kenna was published in EPL Volume 99 Number 2 and is available at:

As in statistical physics, the concept of universality plays an important, albeit qualitative, role in the field of comparative mythology. Here we apply statistical mechanical tools to analyse the networks underlying three iconic mythological narratives with a view to identifying common and distinguishing quantitative features. Of the three narratives, an Anglo-Saxon and a Greek text are mostly believed by antiquarians to be partly historically based while the third, an Irish epic, is often considered to be fictional. Here we use network analysis in an attempt to discriminate real from imaginary social networks and place mythological narratives on the spectrum between them. This suggests that the perceived artificiality of the Irish narrative can be traced back to anomalous features associated with six characters. Speculating that these are amalgams of several entities or proxies, renders the plausibility of the Irish text comparable to the others from a network-theoretic point of view.

Contact: Annette Gallagher, University of Miami

A team of physicists from the University of Miami introduces a breakthrough in the understanding of high-temperature superconductivity

CORAL GABLES, FL (June 18, 2012)--Researchers from the University of Miami (UM) are unveiling a novel theory for high-temperature superconductivity. The team hopes the new finding gives insight into the process, and brings the scientific community closer to achieving superconductivity at higher temperatures than currently possible. This is a breakthrough that could transform our world. (...)

The study, titled "Pairing Glue Activation in Curates within the Quantum Critical Regime," is published online ahead of print by the journal Europhysics Letters.
