APEX published in 2008 will be available FREE OF CHARGE for 1 year starting from January 1, 2010.

MESSAGE FROM THE EDITOR-IN-CHIEF

I am pleased to announce that the articles published in Applied Physics Express (APEX) in 2008 (volume 1) will be available free of charge for one year from January 1, 2010 in celebration of the second anniversary of APEX.

APEX has been launched since 2008 to succeed the former Japanese Journal Applied Physics (JJAP) Part 2, especially the Express Letters section that has significant impacts to researchers in the field of applied physics. Fortunately, regardless of newly launched journal, we have had many contributions and downloads from all over the world.

I believe that this anniversary campaign will provide the researchers who are unaware of APEX an opportunity to recognize how excellent results APEX has published. Besides, for the researchers who have contributed to APEX up to the present, this may lead to the opportunities to enhance the visibility of their articles.

On behalf of the Editorial Board, I hope that more researchers will be readers and/or contributors of APEX.

Kazuhiko Hirakawa, Editor-in-Chief
