The Japan Society of Applied Physics


JSAP publishes three English-language research journals and one Japanese-language membership journal.

Research Journals

Applied Physics Express

Applied Physics Express (APEX) is a letter journal devoted solely to rapid dissemination of up-to-date and concise reports on new findings in applied physics. This is published daily online and monthly for the printed version.

APEX is the successor to the Japanese Journal of Applied Physics (JJAP) letter section, JJAP Part 2, and not only has inherited the world-wide recognition of JJAP Part 2 (Letters and Express Letters), but also further promotes its strength in high scientific quality and prompt publication. In the journal policy, special emphasis is placed on high scientific and/or technological impact of its published papers.

Japanese Journal of Applied Physics

The Japanese Journal of Applied Physics (JJAP) is an international journal for the advancement and dissemination of knowledge in all fields of applied physics. The journal publishes articles dealing with the applications of physical principles as well as articles concerning the understanding of physics that have particular applications in mind. The journal not only covers all aspects of modern technology such as semiconductor devices including VLSI technology, photonic devices, superconductors, and magnetic recording but also covers other diverse areas such as plasma physics, particle accelerators, nanoscience and technology, and applied bioscience. Articles in interdisciplinary areas with potential technological implications are strongly encouraged.

JJAP is published monthly and is for Regular Papers, Rapid Communications, Brief Notes, and Review Papers. In addition, several Special Issues are published each year. These contain monographs from international conferences and up-to-date findings of research groups.

Comments and replies are also published. This section includes the comments on papers previously published in JJAP, and a replies to those.

There is also a special section, “Selected Topics in Applied Physics” that highlights specific topics in applied physics. This section features rapidly developing current trends in the selected research area.
