American Institute Of Physics > iResearch App

A New Application lets Researchers Download and Store AIP Journal Articles to their iPhone or iPod Touch

Melville, NY, October 8, 2009 — Journal articles on various topics, ranging from applied and chemical physics to renewable energy, are now available on Apple iPhone and Apple iPod touch devices. The American Institute of Physics (AIP) ... one of the world's largest publishers of information in the physical sciences and a leader in the field of electronic publishing, announced the launch today of its new mobile e-Reader application, iResearch. iResearch was developed to provide physicists, engineers, scientists, and students, with mobile access to valuable physics journal content. Users may access iResearch via the Apple iTunes store to download the application for version 3.0 and higher.

"iResearch is an important part of AIP's strategy to bring our content closer to end users and provide researchers worldwide with access to information wherever and whenever they need it," said James Wonder, Director of Emerging Technology, American Institute of Physics. [snip]

In addition to readily accessing AIP content through a Wi-Fi network or cellular connection, iResearch enables users to optionally save files in PDF format on their iPhone or iPod touch for offline viewing. [snip]

The journals available in the iResearch application include: Applied Physics Letters, Biomicrofluidics, Chaos, Journal of Applied Physics, The Journal of Chemical Physics, Journal of Mathematical Physics, Journal of Physical and Chemical Reference Data, Journal of Renewable and Sustainable Energy, Low Temperature Physics, Physics of Fluids, Physics of Plasmas, and Review of Scientific Instruments.

  1. The iResearch application is compatible with the iPhone and iPod touch devices running software verison 3.0 and higher. iResearch is an offline e-reader that enables users to save PDF files locally to their device and view them offline without a Wifi or cellular connection. Users navigate through the journals, the volumes and issues to select an article they wish to read. A user will be automatically logged in with their institutional IP Address if they are online within a qualifying address range, or he/she can enter their username/password to obtain access. When the PDF has been loaded to the device the user can select to save the file locally onto the iPhone/iPod touch. Once the PDF is saved locally the user can read the article off-line. I am a college sophomore with a dual major in Physics and Mathematics @ University of California, Santa Barbara. By the way, i came across these excellent physics flash cards. Its also a great initiative by the FunnelBrain team. Amazing!!
