Please note that all prices are subject to change.

There are also several new offerings and important developments we'd like to
alert you to.

Physics Today Offers Online Access to Institutions

Physics Today subscribers will have the option to access an online backfile
with their 2007 subscription for an additional US$200 fee. Institutional
subscribers who choose this option will have access from 2001 to all but the
most recent 12 months of the magazine; current contents remain a benefit to
member subscribers. The PT backfile is included in the AIP Archival and AIP
Archival Plus combination subscriptions; the backfile is also available as a
separate online-only subscription. AIP plans to digitize all issues back to the
magazine's launch in 1948, eventually creating a complete Physics Today
digital archive.

AIP to Launch First Open Access Journal by January 2007

AIP introduces Biomicrofluidics, the first title in its new series, AIP Access
X-Press. This will be a series of Open Access, online-only journals, featuring
rapid publication times.

Two AIP Journals Offer Selected Content in Separate Formats

Beginning in January 2007, JCP: Biochemical Physics will provide, in an
online-only format, all articles from the Journal of Chemical Physics (JCP) that
focus on biochemical-related topics. Applied Physics Reviews, long a distinct
section within Journal of Applied Physics (JAP), will also have separate
online-only distribution in 2007. (Subscribers to JCP and JAP will continue to
receive all this content with their regular subscriptions.) Applied Physics
Reviews includes a backfile of review articles back to 1980.

New Topical Collections Available from AIP Conference Proceedings

Previously available only as print standing orders, the topical subseries
within the AIP Conference Proceedings program will now be available as separate
online-only subscriptions. Subseries include Accelerators and Beams; Astronomy &
Astrophysics; Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics; Nuclear & High Energy
Physics, Mathematical and Statistical Physics; Plasma Physics; and Materials
Physics & Applications. Each series includes all published content from 2000 to
the present.

AIP Revises Tiered Pricing System

In 2007, AIP will move to a six-tier pricing system, in part to reduce the
large price differences between the highest tiers in the current system. Some
accounts from Tier 4 will be moved to the new Tier 5, while all accounts
previously in Tier 5 will be relabeled as the new Tier 6. Librarians at affected
institutions will be notified directly.

Backfile Enhancements

Reference links are being added to the backfiles of AIP archival journals. In
2007, all abstracts back to 1991 will include these links to cited articles.

If you have a question regarding your institution's AIP tier assignment, or
about the prices posted, please contact or call 1-800-344-6902.

We look forward to serving you in the new subscription year.
