iPeerReview provides mobile access to submitted papers

MELVILLE, N.Y., Aug. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AIP Publishing, a division of the American Institute of Physics (AIP) (, announces the release of its new app, iPeerReview. The new app allows authors and reviewers to use their iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices to access a broad range of information on papers submitted to any of AIP's journals in Peer X-Press, AIP's manuscript submission and review system.


"iPeerReview is an integral part of our comprehensive strategy to make all AIP content -- both live and in production -- more accessible to our users," said Evan Owens, AIP's chief information officer, publishing. "We recognize that our authors and reviewers need fast, convenient access to their papers during the review process, and now we've created an app with a clean, streamlined design, which can deliver these papers -- anytime and anywhere they need them."

Once logged in, users can perform a number of activities related to their papers. They can access a list of all active and completed papers, view the status history of a paper, view and save a paper in PDF format, email a paper, and link to a paper on AIP's Scitation platform if it is in production or to Peer X-Press if it is under review.

When users access iPeerReview, they can either log in or access papers that they have previously saved to their device. The app will determine if they are an author, a reviewer, or both. In the event that they are both an author and a reviewer, iPeerReview will allow them to access both sets of papers under separate tabs.

To download the app, search for iPeerReview in the iTunes App Store or visit AIP Labs
