The Japan Society of Applied Physics (JSAP) is pleased to announce a new partnership with IOP Publishing to publish Applied Physics Express (APEX) and the Japanese Journal of Applied Physics (JJAP).

You can now view all APEX and JJAP papers through IOP Publishing’s online journal platform, IOPscience. As well as current papers, you can also access the extensive archive of over 65 000 articles for both journals at and from December 2013.

Hosting APEX and JJAP articles on IOPscience will enable you to interact with research in new ways. Through the Article Evolution™ functionality on IOPscience, you can:

  • view new articles as HTML pages
  • zoom in and out of images
  • view video abstracts
  • discover the wider impact of individual articles through article level metrics
  • improve the rendering of mathematics through MathJax technology
  • view abstract and article pages via mobile, tablet and desktop

Visit to access the IOPscience User Guide for more information on how to use the IOPscience platform.

You can access IOPscience via your library homepage, or anywhere you have access to the internet using your Shibboleth or Athens authentication.

IOPscience is also COUNTER compliant, providing librarians with credible usage reporting for all information accessed on IOPscience. For more information on how to access reports visit

JSAP will continue to manage submissions, peer review, copyright and production for both titles and IOP Publishing will manage the sales, marketing and online hosting.
