Creating Links

To create a link to your article* in the American Journal of Physics, you need to know the volume number and the starting page number. The general format for the URL is http://link.aip.org/link/ajp/vol/page, where

vol is the volume number, and page is the starting page number of the article.

Example: To link to Douglas D. Osheroff, Am. J. Phys. 69, 26 (2001).

The URL is: http://link.aip.org/link/ajp/69/26

The HTML link is:
<A HREF=" http://link.aip.org/link/ajp/69/26">Douglas Osheroff, Am. J. Phys. 69, 26 (2001)</A>

The Link would appear as:
Douglas Osheroff, Am. J. Phys. 69, 26 (2001)

*Article links go to the online abstract, which contains links to all available full-text formats.
