2010. The new e-only option will allow customers to renew 2009
subscriptions to all IOP Publishing-owned titles in 2010 with no price
increase. E-only versions of IOP journal packages will also be available
for the first time.

A full list of 2010 prices, including all our partner journal prices, is
available now at

For specific details about your institution's subscriptions, please
contact your regional representative, subscription agent or e-mail (customers in the Americas) or
(customers in all other countries).

More Open Access publications
IOP proudly continues to invest in providing open access options to the
physical sciences community. We now offer six free-to-read titles
including: Environmental Research Letters; IOP Conference Series: Earth
and Environmental Science; Journal of Physics: Conference Series; New
Journal of Physics; Science and Technology of Advanced Materials; and
IOP Conference Series: Materials Science and Engineering. For more
information on any of these publications, visit

Improving online services
IOP continues to look at how we can improve the online delivery of
journal subscriptions and enhance the researcher's experience. In
2009/2010 IOP will be investing in updating our existing electronic

American Anthropological Association Freezes Journal Subscription Dues
Group Responds to Financial Pressure on Library Subscribers

The American Anthropological Association (AAA) announced that its
Executive Board voted to freeze 2010 subscription rates for all of its
journals in an effort to respond to the concerns of their primary

At a time where librarians are worried about the current economic
recession and are tightening their budgets, the AAA took swift action to
respond to the need of their primary constituents. Today’s action also
includes the freezing of rates for AnthroSource, the AAA supported
premier online portal providing access to over 100 years of
anthropological knowledge.

“AAA is committed to listening to our resource partners, and this step
by the Executive Board proves that,” AAA Executive Director Bill Davis
said in a statement released today. “We take very seriously our
responsibility to make anthropological knowledge as accessible as
possible, and will do everything in our power to ensure that
researchers, students and others continue to explore the depths of this
wonderful discipline.”

Academic librarians nationwide are expressing concern about their given
the current economic crisis and the reduction in federal, state and
local funding for their operations, AAA is committed to ensuring that as
many libraries as possible continue to have access to anthropological
research published in its 22 publications, including the American
Anthropologist, American Ethnologist, Anthropology and Education
Quarterly, Cultural Anthropology, Ethos, and Medical Anthropology Quarterly.

Although the association is freezing prices, AAA and its publishing
partner, Wiley-Blackwell, continue to make investments in the
aforementioned journals and AnthroSource..

Wiley-Blackwell has invested in a massive retrodigitization project,
which will consolidate all AAA content on a single platform and add more
than 900 articles to AnthroSource as well as four decades of
Anthropology News. New content now appears in full-text, full-searchable
HTML as well as PDF format, and editors have the option to publish
figures in color online. Plans are also underway for new online features
including supporting materials (e.g. datasets, translations), online
discussions linked to content, and podcasts.

To help ensure underresourced communities can access the content, the
AAA and Wiley-Blackwell also continue to make our content available for
free or at a reduced cost in the developing world via philanthropic
programs such as HINARI, OARE, INASP and AGORA, and offer free access to
AnthroSource to U.S. Tribal Colleges, U.S. Historically Black Colleges
and Universities, Canadian Arctic Colleges and Canadian First Nation

APS and AIP Launch Virtual Journal of Atomic Quantum Fluids

MELVILLE, NEW YORK, July 15, 2009 - The American Physical Society (APS)
and the
American Institute of Physics (AIP) today announced the launch of the
Journal of Atomic Quantum Fluids (VJAQF). Edited by MIT's Wolfgang Ketterle,
co-recipient of the 2001 Nobel Prize for Physics, along with Markus
Greiner of
Harvard University and Peter Zoller of the University of Innsbruck, the new
Virtual Journal (VJ) is now available online at

VJAQF covers new developments in the study of novel quantum fluids and
systems using ultracold atoms. These include Bose-Einstein condensates,
degenerate Fermi gases, and ultracold atoms in optical lattices. Several
specific aspects of atomic quantum fluids are covered in dedicated sections:
multi-component systems, topological excitations, collisional properties and
few-body physics, and atom optics. The VJ also covers aspects of
many-body physics.

"The field of atomic quantum fluids is a rapidly advancing frontier area of
physics and combines experimental and theoretical studies in different
subfields" observed VJAQF Editor Wolfgang Ketterle. "Providing
researchers with
a single, convenient site containing papers from a broad range of leading
physics-related journals will greatly help them keep current with the latest

VJAQF will feature critical research articles, updated monthly, along with
postings of news items and conferences of interest to the community.
are selected from recent issues of nearly 90 participating source
journals from
AIP, APS, and a dozen other publishers. Readers can sign up for tables of
contents alerts via e-mail and subscribe to RSS feeds. VJQAF offers free
searching, browsable tables of contents, and freely available abstracts,
links to full-text articles in the source journals. Subscribers to the
journal can seamlessly access the full-text articles, while
non-subscribers have
the option to purchase articles for immediate online delivery.

"The Virtual Journal series has become a highly valuable cross-publisher
research tool, alerting practitioners in several fields to the breadth of
research dispersed in the literature," said Gene Sprouse, APS
He added, "The inclusion of topflight research in atomic quantum fluids
brings a
large influx of vital new research to the Virtual Journals series. It
will be a
great benefit to the scientists and engineers worldwide, who will now
find an
even broader collection of research in this rich resource."

Five additional Virtual Journals are also accessible online. Virtual
Journal of
Nanoscale Science and Technology, the Virtual Journal of Biological Physics
Research, Virtual Journal of Quantum Information, Virtual Journal of
Science, and Virtual Journal of Applications of Superconductivity can be

AIP Executive Director and CEO Fred Dylla noted, "I expect that VJAQF will
become a valuable resource for individuals and smaller institutions with
specialized interests who do not need, or cannot afford, subscriptions
to the
complete range of journals from which Virtual Journal articles are
chosen. Now
they can keep up with this ever-growing field and, as needed, purchase
articles online from journals of prestigious scientific
at very low rates."

American Physical Society is a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to the
advancement and diffusion of the knowledge of physics. APS represents
more than
47,000 physicists worldwide and is a leader in the creation of
e-journals. It
publishes leading international physics journals, including Physical Review
Letters, Reviews of Modern Physics, Physical Review A-E, Physical Review
Topics, and Physics - a new, free, online publication spotlighting
research. APS also organizes major scientific meetings and provides strong
outreach programs, including education and both international and public

American Institute of Physics is a federation of 10 physical science
representing more than 135,000 scientists, engineers, and educators and
is one
of the world's largest publishers of scientific information in physics.
full-solution publishing services for scientific societies and for similar
organizations in science and engineering, AIP pursues innovation in
publishing of scholarly journals. AIP publishes 12 journals (some of
which are
the most highly cited in their respective fields); two magazines,
including its
flagship publication Physics Today; and the AIP Conference Proceedings. Its
online publishing platform Scitation hosts nearly two million articles
from more
than 185 scholarly journals and other publications of 28 learned society
