AIP Publishing is honored to report that AIPP’s Journal of Applied Physics and its most recent former Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Andre Anders, were the focus of the inaugural for “Global Journal Observatory,” a column introduced by Science and Technology Daily in partnership with the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).
According to Science and Technology Daily, China’s sole national newspaper specializing in the coverage of science and technology news, “Global Journal Observatory,” invites editors-in-chief of world-renowned academic journals to share their journal’s history, development prospects, and any insights they might have into promoting the greater publication and sharing of important scientific research.
In the piece, titled “China’s Growing Contribution to Journal of Applied Physics,” Anders discusses the history, development, and scope of Journal of Applied Physics — as well as the steady and remarkable increase of submissions from China. He attributes this to China’s investments in education and research and commitment to improving the quality of their scientific output.
“Publishing is — like all things in modern life – subject to accelerating changes,” Anders wrote. “We, as a team of active researchers and editors supported by a team of professionals in publishing, embrace change. […] I recall submitting manuscripts by post. Going all-electronic was a revolution a couple of decades ago. Now, the next revolution is in full swing. Correctly using artificial intelligence is one [revolutionary change] and publishing various models for “open access” is another. For those and other topics, engaging with the Chinese research community is critical and we look forward to many more years of collaboration with our Chinese friends.”

Anders served as Journal of Applied Physics Editor-in-Chief from 2014-2023. Earlier this month, Caltech’s Julia Greer was announced as stepping into the role.
As a companion piece to the column, CAS Journal Ranking Team researcher Ping Meng wrote the following review of Journal of Applied Physics:
In its century-long journey of development, the Journal of Applied Physics (JAP) has steadfastly committed itself to delivering cutting-edge research within its field. At the heart of its enduring success lies a dedication to professional, meticulous peer review—an integral element that sets JAP apart.
The journal has garnered the trust of numerous authors by virtue of its precise and efficient peer review process. Many initial drafts of papers have undergone a rejuvenation, benefiting immensely from the detailed and pertinent comments provided by JAP. This commitment to excellence in peer review has enabled JAP to consistently achieve its goal of disseminating high-caliber knowledge, establishing itself as a guiding presence for researchers transitioning from students to seasoned scientists.
The bedrock of JAP’s appeal lies in its unwavering reliability—a quality that every esteemed journal should embody. Consequently, JAP has earned a reputation for rigorous standards within the Chinese scientific research community, emerging as a preferred avenue for scholars seeking to publish top-tier scientific research.
