AAPT is a strong professional physics science society dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in physical science education. The teacher resources include two peer reviewed journals, digital collections of high-quality educational materials in physics and astronomy, and a Physical Sciences Resource Center.
The SAO/NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS) is a Digital Library portal for researchers in Astronomy and Physics, operated by the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory (SAO) under a NASA grant. The ADS maintains three bibliographic databases containing more than 9.2 million records: Astronomy and Astrophysics, Physics, and arXiv e-prints. The main body of data in the ADS consists of bibliographic records, which are searchable through highly customizable query forms, and full-text scans of much of the astronomical literature which can be browsed or searched via our full-text search interface. Integrated in its databases, the ADS provides access and pointers to a wealth of external resources, including electronic articles, data catalogs and archives. We currently have links to over 9.2 million records maintained by our collaborators. Free full text - managed by publisher, holdings subject to change
Cambridge University Press publishes a wide range of research monographs, academic reference, textbooks, books for professionals, and large numbers of books aimed at graduate students. There are thousands of ebooks available across a wide range of disciplines including law, politics, history, language and literature, mathematics and astronomy with hundreds of new titles added each year.
Codices Hugeniani Online (COHU) offers the fully digitized archive of Christiaan Huygens (1629 - 1695), held at Leiden University Library. The archive includes notebooks and loose leafs with texts in the field of astronomy, mechanics, mathematics and music, as well as correspondence and annotated books. Huygens was a prominent Dutch mathematician, astronomer and physicist. He published major studies on mechanics and optics, and a pioneer work on games of chance. He is famous for his discovery of the rings of Saturn and its moon Titan, and for inventing the pendulum clock.
The publishing house of S. Hirzel specializes in the fields of chemistry, physics (particularly acoustics), Germanic languages and literatures, and philosophy. The journal "Acta Acustica united with Acustica" was founded in 1936 as the "Akustische Zeitschrift", later becoming "Acustica" in 1951. Since 1996 is has been published in cooperation with the European Acoustics Association (EAA).
Inspec is an important and frequently used A&I databases evolved from "Science Abstract" (SA, Science Abstract), started in 1898. It covers the fields of Physical Sciences, most areas of Engineering as well as computing and IT. The contents are sourced from scientific journals published in many countries, publishers and conference proceedings. It has millions of records dated since 1898 with all the contents selected to reflect the quality of the Database. Inspec also provides indexes for users to obtain accurate search on refined subject areas related to chemicals, searches based on specific number or numerical range (important for physicians), astrophysical object search, etc. The Database also offers International Patent Classification (IPC) search for Patent Examiners and Corporate Researchers to plan and pinpoint their research based on the latest patents and future patent development.
