报告题目：Discussion meeting with editor-in-chief of American Physical Society
Editor-in-Chief of American Physical Society
APS editor-in-chief, Professor Michael Thoennessen will present an introduction of APS publications and discuss with audience on following issues. 1) Do you think currently APS journals meet your requirements in publication? Are there any demands for new journals? 2) How do you feel about the review process of APS journals? Any aspects that we can do it better? 3) How do you feel about open access? Do you expect that researchers will welcome it in China? 4) Will it be annoying if APS consult the referee before sending manuscript and ask for returning a report within certain period? How long this period should be? 5) Any suggestions and comments regarding APS journals?
