CrossMark Implemented on AIP journalsAIP Publishing is dedicated to scientific accuracy and integrity and as a result has implemented CrossMark on its publications. As of December 2012, a CrossMark logo will appear on an HTML page or PDF file indicating that the publisher is maintaining the published document through any updates, corrections, enhancements, retractions, and other such changes. Clicking the CrossMark logo reveals status information about the document and tells readers whether they are accessing the most recent and reliable version or not. A link to any updated version will be included. You can learn more about CrossMark from the CrossRef website.
Celebrating APL’s 50th Anniversary!
In celebrating the 50th Anniversary of APL, APL has joined the research community in series of celebration events and activities.
APL’s 50th Anniversary Reception and Symposium (Video and PDF presentations).
A collection of fifty of the many notable APL articles from 2009 through August 2012, that the Editor has selected to showcase ongoing innovative research activities. This collection illustrates only a small fraction of the novel research published in APL over the past fifty years, but is representative of the broad cross section of topics that the Journal covers.
The articles listed in this collection are freely available online at this site until the end of September 2013.
A collection highlighting the fifty most highly cited papers published in the Journal over the past 50 years.

- We are saddened to report the sudden passing of APL Senior Associate Editor, Jules L. Routbort. Dr. Routbort joined the Journal as an Associate Editor in 1992, and became Senior Associate Editor in 2008, in concurrence with his regular research work as a Senior Scientist at Argonne National Laboratory. In his 20-year dedicated service to the Journal, he efficiently shepherded thousands of submitted papers through the peer-review system and constantly strived to maintain high standards of APL publications. His judgment was always fair and firm. The American Institute of Physics joins the entire APL community in honoring Dr. Routbort’s legacy of excellence. (28 March 2012)

- Celebrating APL’s 50th Anniversary!>—The first year of Applied Physics Letters ran approximately 8 articles every two weeks. Since the first issue, published in September 1962, the Journal has evolved to meet the changing needs of the scientific community and to follow the trends of the applied physics field. In 2011, a week’s worth of Applied Physics Letters amounts to about 85 articles per issue across a broad range of topics, all highly relevant and highly cited. Now, as APL enters its fiftieth year of serving the needs of physicists and scientists around the globe, we invite you to not only look back at the most highly cited papers from the past 50 years, but also to look forward to another 50 exciting years on the cutting edge of scientific discovery!

- The 2011 Nobel Prize in Chemistry
The American Institute of Physics congratulates this year's Nobel Laureate in Chemistry “for the discovery of quasicrystals.” The prize was awarded to Daniel Shechtman, a distinguished professor at the Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa. Contrary to the previous belief that all crystals had a well-defined symmetry with repeatable patterns, Shechtman showed that the atoms in a crystal could be packed in a pattern that never repeated, yet maintained a well-defined symmetry.

- The 2011 Nobel Prize in Physics
The American Institute of Physics congratulates this year's Nobel Laureates in Physics “for the discovery of the accelerating expansion of the Universe through observations of distant supernovae.” Sharing half the prize is Saul Perlmutter from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and University of California, Berkeley. Sharing the other half jointly are Brian P. Schmidt from the Australian National University, and Adam G. Riess from Johns Hopkins University and Space Telescope Science Institute.
