As of July 6th, APS offices are open to staff and invited visitors. The Society will remain closed to the public until further notice. Library & Museum staff now have access to our collections and will respond to reference and photoduplication requests as soon as possible. However, please note that response times may be delayed due to increased demand. The Society will continue a robust slate of virtual programs throughout the fall. Read more about virtual programming and resources that can be accessed remotely. For further information on the APS reopening and its COVID response, please click here.

Publications

The American Philosophical Society is the oldest continuously running scholarly press in the nation and publishes books and articles from all fields of study.

APS offices have reopened for staff, while strong social distancing measures from the COVID-19 pandemic still are being followed. Production, printing, and mailing of our Proceedings and Transactions issues have resumed. We appreciate your patience.

The American Philosophical Society first began publishing manuscripts in 1771 and has since held firm to Benjamin Franklin’s mission to promote useful knowledge. Our monograph and journal publications highlight works and research from all fields of study.

The APS publishes two series of monographs, a quarterly journal, a print-on-demand series, a yearbook for Members, and special publications.
