AIP Publishing is delighted to announce another addition to its rapidly expanding portfolio of Open Access journals: APL Quantum.
Dedicated to the growing fields of quantum information sciences, the development of quantum technologies and algorithms, and the use of quantum computing in novel applications, APL Quantum seeks to build connections between academia and industry and accelerate important translational research. The field’s importance, potential, and need for outlets was recently underscored by the 2022 Nobel Prize in Physics being awarded to Alain Aspect, John Clauser, and Anton Zeilinger for their groundbreaking work in quantum entanglement.
The journal will welcome research articles, comprehensive reviews, and perspectives. Research articles must report significant advances as they relate to physical and materials sciences and the engineering communities. APL Quantum will consider submissions that substantially describe quantitative models and theories, especially if the research is validated with appropriate experimental results.
APL Quantum will be AIP Publishing’s latest OA journal, sitting alongside APL Energy, APL Machine Learning, APL Materials, APL Photonics, and APL Bioengineering. Together, these journals advance open science while maintaining the high-quality peer review ethos that serves as the hallmark of AIP Publishing’s portfolio.
“We’re excited to welcome APL Quantum into our family of Open Access publications,” said AIP Publishing CEO Alix Vance. “Open science is ushering in a new era of global knowledge sharing. Our portfolio stands in support of those ideals — while exemplifying AIP Publishing’s rich legacy of impactful research.”
APL Quantum will open for submissions in mid-2023, with an aim to begin publishing at the end of 2023. AIP Publishing will waive article processing charges (APCs) for the first year of publication. The search is currently underway for the journal’s Editor-in-Chief.
“Every journal at AIP Publishing is established on a foundation of impeccable editorial standards and a powerful focus on the needs of the research community, and APL Quantum will follow in that tradition,” said Dr. Penelope Lewis, AIP Publishing’s Chief Publishing Officer. “Quantum science has been a growing component of the AIP Publishing portfolio for the past decade. APL Quantum will be a home for researchers to publish their impactful publications and drive progress in this important field.”
More information on the journal’s editorial mission and scope will be announced once the Editor-in-Chief is appointed. The Editor-in-Chief of APL Quantum will have the opportunity to shape this field, bolster the research community, and make a remarkable impact.
