Historical Note

The American Institute of Physics (AIP) is a not-for-profit membership corporation chartered in New York State in 1931 for the purpose of promoting the advancement and diffusion of the knowledge of physics and its application to human welfare. Its members are leading societies in the fields of physics and astronomy, and its activities include providing services to its member societies in publishing, finance, and education. The publishing activities of the American Institute of Physics are periodically undertaken jointly with other corporate entities on projects of mutual interest.

Scope and Contents of Collection
