News: AIP Releases the Enriched, A comprehensive one-stop website for researching graduate programs in physics, astronomy, and related fields

From Lori S. Carlin, Director, Fulfillment and Marketing, AIP Publishing:

“College Park, MD, January 17, 2012 – Prospective graduate students have a new and powerful tool to help them evaluate and select the graduate program that best meets their needs and academic goals.

The American Institute of Physics’ (AIP) newly enhanced and updated GradschoolShopper website<; is a comprehensive one-stop resource for researching graduate programs in physics, astronomy, and related fields. The site is designed to provide easy access to the most thorough, specific, relevant, up-to-date, and authoritative information on graduate programs and research in physics and related fields.

The site presents exhaustive profiles of the great majority of U.S. physics and astronomy doctoral programs and many master’s degree programs in the United States. The physics-related department profiles include fields such as nuclear engineering, electrical engineering, chemical physics, material science, meteorology, geophysics, medical physics, oceanography, and acoustics. The site is a global resource, with 30 percent of its traffic coming from outside the United States.

A dynamic complement to the print publication, Graduate Programs in Physics, Astronomy and Related Fields, which AIP has been producing since 1965,<; adds search-ability, greater accessibility, and convenience. The online department profiles now display general information such as degree requirements, admissions, tuition costs, financial aid, and housing; and more specific information, including specialties for degree programs, department research specialties, faculty information and specialties, notable alumni, special equipment, facilities or programs, research funding, department culture, and more.

“We will continue to grow this important online tool for the physical science community,” said Eva Adams, AIP’s corporate strategy director. “We will not only expand its content and coverage, but also enhance its interactive functions, to make the site a truly interactive platform, where recruiting departments, advisors, faculty, prospective graduate students and other interested parties can promote, search and exchange information about graduate programs in physics, astronomy, and related fields.”

About AIP
The American Institute of Physics (AIP) is an organization of 10 physical science societies, representing more than 135,000 scientists, engineers, and educators. As one of the world’s largest publishers of scientific information in physics, AIP employs innovative publishing technologies and offers publishing services for its Member Societies. AIP’s suite of publications includes 15 journals, three of which are published in partnership with other societies; magazines, including its flagship publication Physics Today; and the AIP Conference Proceedings series. Through its Physics Resources Center, AIP also delivers valuable services and expertise in education and student programs, science communications, government relations, career services for science and engineering professionals, statistical research, industrial outreach, and the history of physics and other sciences.
