 STLQ: American Institute of Physics Announces "AIP Author Select" - A New Open Access Initiative for 2005
Of the eleven journals published or co-published by AIP, these three titles were chosen for this experiment because they are important, high-impact journals that impose no page charges (other than a standard AIP charge for articles of excessive length).
AIP is familiar with the reactions among publishers and librarians to other models and experiments in open-access publishing.
AIP is already considered a "green" publisher, in that it allows authors to post e-prints to their personal or institutional websites.

Marc H. Brodsky says that when he takes over as the director and chief executive officer of the American Institute of Physics (AIP) on November 1, one important goal of his will be to establish a positive public perception of physics.
A second goal Brodsky identifies for his tenure at AIP is to negotiate a new relationship between the nation's libraries and the organi-zation's technical publications.
In November, AIP will leave its present offices in New York City and--along with the American Physical Society and the American Association of Physics Teachers--move to College Park, Md., to create the American Center for Physics.

 Marie Curie - Biography
She succeeded her husband as Head of the Physics Laboratory at the Sorbonne, gained her Doctor of Science degree in 1903, and following the tragic death of Pierre Curie in 1906, she took his place as Professor of General Physics in the Faculty of Sciences, the first time a woman had held this position.
She was also appointed Director of the Curie Laboratory in the Radium Institute of the University of Paris, founded in 1914.
Together with her husband, she was awarded half of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1903, for their study into the spontaneous radiation discovered by Becquerel, who was awarded the other half of the Prize.
