According to the AIP website, “AIP Advances is a fully open access, online-only community-led journal, covering all areas of applied physical science,” and it is funded by “an author-pays model.” The journal articles will go through both a “pre-publication peer review process” and a post-publication review process conducted by the community of users “through the implementation of web 2.0 commenting and ranking tools.” 
The debut issue of AIP Advances was published in March 2011. AIP Advances is published by “AIP Publishing, a division of the American Institute of Physics (AIP).” 
In the simple search box at the top of website, users can search by volume/page, keyword, DOI (digital object identifier), or citation.
