Happy 80th Anniversary to The Journal of Chemical Physics!
The Journal of Chemical Physics is proud to be celebrating its 80th year as the leading and most cited journal in chemical physics. Celebrate the work that has been published in the journal since 1933 and view the 80th Anniversary Collection.
The Journal of Chemical Physics is pleased to announce a special topic section on the Chemical Physics of Biological Systems. This special topic will showcase the far reaches of the experimental, theoretical, and computational tools in physical chemistry and chemical physics that tackle problems of fundamental importance in biology. It features a wide range of contributions, all the way from the molecular level, to molecular assemblies, chemical physics of the cell, and systems-level approaches that captures the excitement in all of these rapidly growing areas. Martin Gruebele and Dave Thirumalai served as Guest Editors and worked with JCP Editor John Straub to produce this section. The partial issue is now available to view online; the full issue will publish in September 2013.
The Journal of Chemical Physics’ Retains the Top Spot as the Most Highly Cited Journal in the Atomic, Molecular, and Chemical Physics Category
Journal metrics just released by Thomson Reuters*, once again show JCP to be the most highly cited journal tracked in the Atomic, Molecular, and Chemical Physics Category, with 188,038 total citations in 2012.

Special Topic: Glass Transition
The Journal of Chemical Physics is pleased to announce a special topic section on the Glass Transition. This section provides a timely discussion of modern developments in our understanding of the behavior of supercooled liquids and amorphous materials, which have implications in diverse fields ranging from biology to materials science. In spite of decades of intense theoretical and experimental study, the fundamental causes of vitrification are still debated. David Reichman served as Guest Editor and worked with James Skinner and other JCP Associate Editors to produce this section.
JCP welcomes three new Associate Editors in 2013
Peter Hamm from the University of Zurich, Angelos Michaelides from University College London, and Patricia A. Thiel from Iowa State University.
CrossMark implemented on AIP journals
AIP 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.
Special Topic: Nonadiabatic Dynamics
The Journal of Chemical Physics is pleased to announce a special topic section on Nonadiabatic Dynamics. This section provides a timely discussion of modern developments, applications, and challenges in dynamics beyond the Born-Oppenheimer approximation. Xiaosong Li and Oleg Prezdho served as Guest Editors and worked with JCP Associate Editors Ernest Davidson and Todd Martinez to produce this section. This Special Topic leads off with a Perspective: Nonadiabatic Dynamics Theory by John C. Tully.
Special Topic: Photochemistry at Surfaces
The Journal of Chemical Physics is pleased to announce a special topic section on Photochemistry at Surfaces. Essays in this section present personal perspectives on the field and provide an overview of promising areas for future research on photo-initiated processes at surfaces using advanced experimental techniques. JCP Associate Editor Horia Metiu served as Editor of this section.
