    I apologize if this is not the proper forum for this question. But I can't think of a more relavant subforum and I know that people here have the experience necessary to answer my question.

    I am working on two basic articles (one on quantum computing and one on th ecalculation fo scattering amplitudes in string theory) that I am planning to submit to the American Journal of Physics. There is nothing really new in these papers, just a repackaging of known results in a way that I consider is suitable for AmJPhys.
    My question is this: do people submitting to AJP also submit their papers to the lanl archives? And if so, what would be the right archive to submit too for something pedagogical about string theory (with no new article)? It's too basic fro hep-th. It's not a physics education paper. It's not a research paper in quantum physics. Any suggestion?

    Thank you!

    I know I have seen AJP articles on the arxiv, but I can't remember under which headings.

    Maybe you could look through some back issues of AJP for some interesting articles, and then seach the arxiv to see if the articles are also there.

    Thanks George, that's a good idea.
