Scitation provides researchers, students, and educators with access to current, cutting edge research plus a deep archive of seminal physics content that supports the study and advancement of physics and related disciplines including physics, chemistry, geosciences, engineering, and acoustics.
Including journals, conference proceedings, standards, and magazines, Scitation hosts nearly one million articles published by AIP Publishing and AIP Member Societies
One of the world’s largest publishers of scientific information in physics and the related sciences, AIP Publishing employs innovative technologies and offers publishing services for the American Institute of Physics and AIP Member Society publishing partners. AIP Publishing’s suite of publications includes 17 journals, three of which are published in partnership with other organizations; magazines, including AIP’s flagship publication Physics Today; and the AIP Conference Proceedings series.
The purpose of the Acoustical Society of America is to increase the knowledge of acoustics and to promote its practical applications. Established in 1929, the present membership includes leaders in acoustics worldwide. Diverse fields of interest in acoustics include physics, engineering, architecture, noise, oceanography, biology, speech and hearing, psychology and music.
The purposes of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) are to promote the application of physics to medicine and biology, encourage interest and training in medical physics and related fields. The AAPM has established Medical Physics as its primary scientific and informational journal. The AAPM is a Member of the American Institute of Physics.
AAPT is a professional membership association of scientists dedicated to enhancing the understanding and appreciation of physics through teaching. AAPT was established in 1930 with the fundamental goal of ensuring the "dissemination of knowledge of physics, particularly by way of teaching."
The American Astronomical Society (AAS), established 1899, is the major organization of professional astronomers in North America. The membership (~7,000) also includes physicists, mathematicians, geologists, engineers and others whose research interests lie within the broad spectrum of subjects now comprising contemporary astronomy. The mission of the American Astronomical Society is to enhance and share humanity's scientific understanding of the Universe.
The American Crystallographic Association, Inc. is a non-profit, scientific organization of over 2,200 members in more than 60 countries. ACA was founded in 1949 through a merger of the American Society for X-Ray and Electron Diffraction (ASXRED) and the Crystallographic Society of America (CSA). The objective of the ACA is to promote interactions among scientists who study the structure of matter at atomic (or near atomic) resolution. These interactions will advance experimental and computational aspects of crystallography and diffraction. Understanding the nature of the forces that both control and result from the molecular and atomic arrangements in matter will help shed light on chemical interactions in nature and can therefore lead to cures for disease.
As an interdisciplinary, professional Society, AVS supports networking among academic, industrial, government, and consulting professionals involved in a variety of disciplines - chemistry, physics, biology, mathematics, all engineering disciplines, business, sales, etc. through common interests related to the basic science, technology development, and commercialization of materials, interfaces, and processing area.
CPS is an academic organization under the leadership of the China Association for Science and Technology. Its purpose is to promote the development and popularization of physics. The society publishes 11 academic journals, and 11 others are published by its sub-societies or specialized committees. CPS is a member of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) and of the Association of Asia Pacific Physical Societies (AAPPS).
The Chinese Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (CSTAM) was founded in 1957. Among its founders and early organizers are well-known leading scientists Qian Xuesen (Tsien HS), Zhou Peiyuan (Chou Peiyuan), Qian Weichang (Chien WZ) and Guo Yonghuai (Kuo YH).
Laser Institute of America (LIA), founded in 1968, is the professional society for laser applications and safety. Our mission is to foster lasers, laser applications, and laser safety worldwide. LIA cultivates innovation, ingenuity and inspiration to promote the continued growth and safe use of laser applications.
Rheology, a branch of mechanics, is the study of those properties of materials which determine their response to mechanical force. The word rheology was coined in the 1920's to represent the science of the deformation and flow of matter, and The Society of Rheology was officially formed on December 9, 1929. Meetings of The Society have been held at least annually since that time. The Society has sponsored publication of technical and scientific papers in this field in various journals, currently in its own Journal of Rheology.
