Thank you for your meaningful contribution to Japanese Journal of Applied Physics (JJAP). 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 JJAP papers.

Those of Rapid Communication (RC) and Brief Note (BN) papers will increase from three to four printed pages and from two to three printed pages, respectively. The new rule will be applied to manuscripts submitted on or after January 1, 2013.

Masahiro Asada, Editor-in-Chief
