About AIP Library Matters Newsletter – Summer 2010

AIP Enhances Value of Journal Subscriptions

Rolling backfile replaced with online access back to 1999AIP

AIP2

AIP has always provided the physics community with world-class content. Year after year, AIP journals prove their value to researchers in all branches of science, engineering, and technology. Nowhere is evidence of this value more compelling than in the number of citations they receive. Again last year, Applied Physics Letters and Journal of Applied Physics ranked as the first and second most highly cited journals in Applied Physics as indexed by Thomson Reuters.

Look across our entire catalog and the story is the same: The Journal of Chemical Physics was the most highly cited journal in Atomic, Molecular, and Chemical Physics; Review of Scientific Instruments was the most highly cited in Instruments & Instrumentation; Physics of Plasmas was the most highly cited journal dedicated entirely to plasma physics; and Physics of Fluids was the second most highly cited in Mechanics. As this theme repeats itself, one thing becomes clear–a large number of researchers across a broad range of disciplines rely on AIP journals to support and enhance their own research activities.

AIP PROVIDES ONGOING ONLINE ACCESS AND A DEEPER BACKFILE

From the moment that AIP first introduced an e-only subscription option, it has recognized that subscribers should have the right to own the content they pay for, just as they did with print. For customers who requested it, AIP has provided such archival content by delivering PDF files on CD-ROMs.

We are pleased to announce a new policy giving subscribers better access to AIP journal archives. Beginning January 2011, the following changes will apply:

  • All current subscriptions will include access back to 1999, the year AIP first offered e-only subscriptions. (We currently provide a five-year backfile with each subscription.)
  • Subscribers will continue to have online access to any previously subscribed material from 1999 forward.

Continued online access to previously subscribed material will be free of charge to any customer who maintains a current, active subscription to any AIP journal. Best of all, current subscribers need do nothing to activate this access – your account will automatically be updated to include these prior subscription years, and you will be notified by email when your access is established.

AIP ONE OF FOUR ORGANIZATIONS TO ENDORSE KBART PHASE I RECOMMENDED PRACTICE

Set up OpenURL on Scitation to facilitate timely exchange of metadata

We’ve recently made the titles hosted on our Scitation online platform compliant with the new KBART (Knowledge Bases and Related Tools) recommended practices for the supply of metadata. KBART is a joint initiative of UKSG and NISO, which is exploring data problems within the OpenURL supply chain. AIP’s Julie Zhu has joined the KBART II Working Group, and has been tasked with extending KBART to include conference proceedings and eBooks.

WE’RE HAPPY TO PROVIDE CONTINUED SUPPORT TO SLA’S PAM DIVISION

AIP is once again delighted to support activities of the PAM Division at the SLA Annual Conference. We hope to see you at some of the events we sponsor, which this year include the PAM Open House on Monday, June 14, 7:00 – 10:30 PM in the Gallery Ballroom at the Sheraton New Orleans, and the PAM-Wide Roundtable on Monday, June 14, 2:00 – 3:30 PM in Room 215 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.

Please be sure to stop by our booth, #1015, to learn all about our new offerings and to enter a drawing for an iPod touch! To enter the drawing, we ask that you complete a very brief survey on electronic resources. We look forward to seeing you!

AIP SPONSORS “TWITTER FOR SPECIAL LIBRARIES” WEBINAR

On Wednesday, May 12, AIP sponsored SLA’s Sci-Tech Division’s webinar “Twitter for Special Libraries.” Joe Murphy shared his insights on using twitter to communicate with library clients, and answered questions from the audience in a lively Q&A session. You can view a recording of the webinar on the Sci-Tech Division’s website.

From the Stacks: Bob Michaelson

Bob Michaelson recently announced that he is retiring as Head of the Seeley G. Mudd Library for Science and Engineering at Northwestern University on June 30, where he has worked for the past 30 years. Before that, he worked as a library professional at Yale and Syracuse University. Bob has been a vocal critic of commercial publishers’ journal pricing practices. We wanted to speak with Bob about his reflections on the state of the library profession and what he thinks the future has in store.

What are some of the changes you’ve witnessed during your career, and where do you see librarianship (and journal publishing) moving in the future?

When I arrived at Northwestern, it was renowned for having developed NOTIS, a mainframe-based Library Management System that included circulation and parts of technical processing, though not yet an online catalog in 1980. There were no online journals at all; there was computer-to-computer communication in research laboratories, particularly those funded by the Department of Defense, via TCP/IP, but there wasn’t an Internet as such standard Internet protocols were only implemented in 1982, and even email didn’t exist in libraries. We did online database searching via telephone modem connection from dumb terminals at 300 baud! A few years later we started to get electronic databases on CD-ROM – the impact of Science Citation Index (1985) and other CD databases was enormous at the time, though utterly overshadowed by the later impact of web-based access. Not to belabor the point, it was a completely different world; I certainly didn’t imagine libraries of today, and I don’t know that anyone else did either.

BMF LAUNCHES NEW SECTION: FABRICATION AND LABORATORY METHODS

With the goal of providing a strong reference point for researchers interested in developing lab-on-a-chip and related technologies, Biomicrofluidics has launched a new section called “Fabrication and Laboratory Methods.” The new section is a collection of published “recipes” on novel and classic techniques of laboratory methods and micro-/nanofabrication procedures and is quite unique to the community.

We believe making such procedures freely available will help in the promotion and acceleration of microfluidic and nanofluidic research. We’re also convinced that the articles appearing in this section, which carry a journal citation in their own right, will make the research directly relevant to researchers in other disciplines and to industry practitioners, as well.

CHAOS LEAD PARAGRAPHS MAKE JOURNAL ACCESSIBLE TO SPECIALISTS AND NON-SPECIALISTS ALIKE

Chaos publishes the highest quality research from around the world on the latest developments in nonlinear science. The excitement and challenge of the journal lie in its interdisciplinary character and its firm commitment to communicating the most recent theoretical and experimental developments to the scientific community at large in language that’s accessible to the broadest possible audience.
