Who says scientists don't know how to get physical? The American Institute of Physics (AIP) publishes magazines (Physics Today), journals (Journal of Applied Physics), conference proceedings, online products, and other publications in the sciences of physics and astronomy. The company provides publishing services for its own publications, as well as for its member societies and other publishers. Scitation, AIP's online publishing platform, hosts 1.6 million articles from 190 sources. AIP was founded in New York in 1931 by a group of American physical science societies. It was chartered as a membership corporation to advance and diffuse knowledge of the science of physics and its applications to human welfare.
