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

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.
