A journal focused on high quality research in chemical physics.

CPR is a new journal featuring comprehensive and authoritative reviews and original research that will cover all areas of chemical physics. CPR publishes studies of high quality and general interest to the chemical physics community. The journal’s focus includes experimental and theoretical research in fundamental issues in chemical physics alongside its applications in other branches of science, medicine, and engineering.

Topics covered include:

  • Catalysis
  • Computational Chemical Physics
  • Dynamics in Chemical Physics
  • Energy Storage & Conversion
  • Environmental & Green Chemistry
  • Material Surfaces & Interfaces
  • Nanoscience
  • Photonics
  • Polymers & Soft Matter
  • Supramolecular Chemistry

First Papers are expected to publish in Fall 2020


Our Approach to Publishing

To put it simply, we believe that publishing should be rewarding. CPR is committed to:

Superior editorial and customer service. We’re here for you throughout the submission, review and publication process, and we’ll treat your manuscript like it’s our own. Publishing should be easy, not stressful.

Making your paper the best it can be. We’ll provide expert editorial guidance and fair and constructive peer review along with the highest quality production values to help your paper make the best possible impact.

Making sure your work gets the visibility it deserves. You worked hard on your research, and we’ll work hard to make sure it’s discovered, read and cited. CPR has an expansive global readership, and post-production marketing efforts highlight new discoveries to the research community.

Serving the physical science community. As part of the American Institute of Physics (AIP), AIP Publishing supports AIP’s programs to advance physics through collaboration and outreach, scientific communication, public policy, and educational programs.

Join Our Team

Are you passionate about science and science communication?

CPR is looking for experienced editors to join our team and help shape the future of our journal.

We are actively recruiting the following position:

MEET THE EDITORIAL TEAM
F.N. CASTELLANO, EDITOR-IN-CHIEF

Dr. Castellano is the Goodnight Innovation Distinguished Chair in the Department of Chemistry at North Carolina State University (NC State). Formerly the Director of the Center for Photochemical Sciences while he was a Professor at Bowling Green State University, he moved his research program to NC State in 2013. He earned his Ph.D. in Chemistry from Johns Hopkins University in 1996 and held a NIH Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Maryland, School of Medicine. A Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (FRSC) since 2015, Dr. Castellano earned the I-APS Award in Photochemistry in 2019.

His current research focuses on metal-organic chromophore photophysics and energy transfer, photochemical upconversion phenomena, solar fuels photocatalysis, energy transduction at semiconductor/molecular interfaces, photoredox catalysis, and excited state electron transfer processes.


Luigi Longobardi, Executive Editor

Luigi is a physicist by training, an editor at heart, and can bake an amazing loaf of sourdough bread. Before joining AIP Publishing, Luigi spent six years at the American Physical Society where he was the Assistant Editorial Director and where he worked on Physical Review B and Physical Review X and launched Physical Review Fluids and Physical Review Materials. Luigi received a Ph.D. in physics from Stony Brook University and was subsequently a Marie Curie Researcher in Napoli and then a Research Associate at Dartmouth College.


Amanda Sulicz – Associate Editor

Meticulous care and patience are key attributes of a good associate editor, and Amanda Sulicz is an example of both. In addition to overseeing the management of CPR, she is responsible for the diligent care of two very active Guinea Pigs, creatively named after U.S. Presidents with fashionable facial hair. She also enjoys swimming and playing water polo.

Amanda joins AIP Publishing from the University of Texas in San Antonio where she was a Postdoctoral Researcher for the past two years. Prior to that she was a Research Assistant at Case Western Reserve University where she received her PhD in Chemistry in 2017.
