IET announces coverage of the newly launched AIP Publishing physics journals

The addition of these new journals not only expands the biophysics and chemical physics content that is indexed in Inspec but also highlights Inspec’s aptitude to intake the latest research from new sources. By indexing the most up-to-date research literature, Inspec remains an essential discovery tool for subject-specific and interdisciplinary research in the fields of engineering, physics and computer science.

The Inspec research database now includes coverage of the newly published journals Biophysics Reviews (BPR) and Chemical Physics Reviews (CPR). Both journals published inaugural issues in December 2020 and feature original research articles and authoritative reviews in their respective areas of focus.

Biophysics Reviews (BPR) focuses on reporting important scientific results that detail the role of physics in biology, the use of biology to understand physics and the application of physics tools to understand multiscale biology.

Chemical Physics Reviews (CPR) covers experimental and theoretical research in chemical physics alongside its applications in other branches of science, medicine, and engineering.

AIP Publishing is a wholly owned not-for-profit subsidiary of the American Institute of Physics (AIP). Their publishing portfolio comprises highly regarded, peer-reviewed journals, including a growing portfolio of Open Access titles, that cover all areas of the physical sciences.

Biophysics Reviews (BPR) and Chemical Physics Reviews (CPR) will join over 4,500 journals in Inspec, selected for their specific relevance to the fields of engineering and science. As part of the Inspec database, the journals’ content will be discoverable to a global audience of research universities, corporate research teams, governments and patent offices.
