The journal publishes articles dealing with the applications of physical principles as well as articles concerning the understanding of physics with particular applications in mind. However as a letter journal, emphasis will be given to developing and emerging fields in applied physics. A work of high originality but concerning a field not in a competitive area may be offered a transfer to the Rapid Communication section of the Japanese Journal of Applied Physics (JJAP). Examples of fields of current interest includes:
To explore and support the emerging research field of Physics-based circuits and systems, the Editorial Boards of Applied Physics Express (APEX) and Japanese Journal of Applied Physics (JJAP) are pleased to announce that we have decided to expand the scope of the journals to include this new and exciting topic.
We welcome the submission of research papers describing advanced circuits and systems whose new functionalities are enabled by employing the physical principles of materials and devices. We also highly encourage reports of applications of new materials and/or phenomena in an emerging field of applied physics.
We welcome research papers on, but not limited to, the following subjects:
Submissions of the above subjects will be available on April 2, 2018. We look forward to working with and supporting this emerging community.
