AIP Publishing, a division of the American Institute of Physics (AIP) (, is pleased to announce that it has signed a new partnership agreement with Chinese Journal of Chemical Physics (CJCP).  Beginning in 2012, AIP will manage hosting, sales, marketing, and distribution of CJCP for all international markets outside China. CJCP will maintain editorial control of the journal and distribution in China.

AIP will begin hosting CJCP on its Scitation platform in January 2012. AIP sees CJCP as an ideal complement to its own highly cited publication, The Journal of Chemical Physics.

“We are very pleased to collaborate with the American Institute of Physics, a pioneer in online publishing, which drives innovation through continuing investment in emerging technologies and R&D,” said Prof. Xueming Yang, Editor-in-Chief of Chinese Journal of Chemical Physics. “AIP’s involvement will help our publication to enjoy a higher degree of discoverability and to improve our journal’s quality and prestige.”

Launched in 1988, and supported by both the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences and the University of Science and Technology of China, Hefei, CJCP reports on new and original experimental and theoretical research, bridging atomic- and molecular-level investigations in material science, chemistry, physics, the life sciences, and related fields. The journal comprises letters, articles and reviews.  CJCP is one of 24 journals published by the Chinese Physical Society and is indexed in Thomson Reuters’ Science Citation Index Expanded, as well as in other major indexes.

“There’s so much excellent research being published in the Chinese Journal of Chemical Physics right now, and our goal is to greatly increase the visibility of this work and to disseminate it as rapidly and as widely as possible,” says Robert Harington, Publisher, AIP Partnerships. “We are confident that by leveraging the great functionality of our Scitation platform, we’ll be able to accomplish these goals.”
