Dec 05, 2003

Journals published by the IEEE will soon join the Virtual Journals in Science and Technology (VJ), sponsored by the American Institute of Physics (AIP) and the American Physical Society (APS), the three societies have announced. Articles and abstracts from the IEEE's 120 journals will appear in the VJs in early 2004.

Virtual Journals are online publications that collect papers from a range of science journals. The series currently includes five VJs including nanoscale science, biological physics, quantum information, superconductivity, and ultrafast science. The Virtual Journals ( will now link to articles from the latest issues of more than 175 participating source journals, including Science and Nature.

The American Physical Society is a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to the advancement and diffusion of the knowledge of physics. APS represents more than 42,000 physicists worldwide and is a creator of ejournals. It publishes international physics journals, organizes scientific meetings, and provides outreach programs in education and international and public affairs.

The American Institute of Physics is a not-for-profit corporation chartered in 1931 to provide publishing and distribution services for scientific and technical societies. In addition to the Virtual Journals series, its online publishing platform, Scitation, currently hosts ejournals of many society publishers, as well as AIP's own journals and conference proceedings.

IEEE (The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) is a technical professional society with more than 380,000 members in approximately 150 countries. A not-for-profit organization, the IEEE produces literature in the electrical and electronics engineering and computer science fields. The organization also sponsors or cosponsors international technical conferences each year.
