APS buildings are open to staff and invited visitors. The Library is under renovation until early 2022. We are doing a major upgrade to our technological infrastructure, making some digital collections and services unavailable. If you need immediate assistance with collections, please contact reference@amphilsoc.org.

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.
