The American Institute of Physics (AIP) and Collexis Holdings, Inc., have collaborated to produce the AIP UniPHY scientific networking site for physical scientists. AIP UniPHY differs from other social networking sites in that it comes pre-populated with the profiles of hundreds of thousands of scientists from more than 100 countries, all interconnected by virtue of their publication histories. Any scientist who has published at least three articles over the past 10 years in one of the more than 100 journals in the Searchable Physics Information Notices (SPIN) database has a profile on AIP UniPHY.
Each profile is connected to a network of other profiles that belong to a person's co-authors on any paper, as well as those co-authors' co-authors.
