Thank you for your meaningful contribution to Applied Physics Express (APEX). Considering the recent circumstances surrounding scholarly journals, especially the increasing importance of short articles such as letters, the Editorial Board has decided to change the page limit of an APEX paper. It will increase from three to four printed pages. The new rule will be applied to manuscripts submitted on or after January 1, 2013.
