AAPPS Bulletin, A world-leading journal of Physics
Editor-in-Chief, AAPPS Bulletin
Greetings from the Editor-in-Chief,
A very unexpected year of 2020 has passed and regardless of different strains, we could still meet last year through the internet. AB has taken up a new role, a world-leading journal of Physics. In the year 2020, AB has made some great progress as under:
(1) Cooperation proposal with Springer-Nature has been finalized and starting from 2021, AB will publish its papers in a new formatting style with Springer-Nature.
(2) Accordingly, sections’ structure in AB have been rearranged to Research and Review articles and News and Views/Research Highlights section. The latter will report news from AAPPS and its member societies, highlighting the new developments of physics published in AB and member societies’ journals published in associated countries/regions.
(3) AB has a newly formed and much-strengthened editorial board. A tutorial on how to use the new electronic submission/review system has been made for the editors.
(4) AAPPS Bulletin Lecture Series 2020 was held online via YouTube last December for effective communication between the authors and the readers. Fifteen (15) authors participated in the Lecture Series and delivered talks on their published articles.
(5) All submissions will be uploaded online. The accepted papers will be published online in a continuous publishing format and will be printed every two months same as before.
The above developments have been made only possible because of the diligence of the editorial board, editorial office, authors and the readers. Dr. Woosung Jung, the executive director of APCTP and a deputy editor in chief of AB extends special thanks for realizing all the support and efforts from APCTP.
In 2021, AB will make more efforts in realizing new role of AB to establish it as a world-leading journal of Physics. To realize this goal, it is essential to publish cutting-edge research and review articles.
Let’s work together to see AB a leading physics journal of world and submit the highest quality contributions to AB, now onwards!
