The Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences is one of the oldest scientific journals in the United States and among the most cited of multidisciplinary scientific serials. Continuously published since 1823, the Annals is the premier publication of the Academy, offering the proceedings of conferences sponsored by the NYAS as well as those of other scientific organizations.
With 32 volumes published annually, the Annals provides multidisciplinary perspectives on research of current scientific interest with far-reaching implications for the wider scientific community and society at large. The Annals' scope, although primarily focused on biomedicals areas, extends into fields as diverse as astronomy, psychology, anthropology, and philosophy. Each publication assembles the best thinking of key contributors for a comprehensive treatment of a field of investigation at a time when emerging developments offer the promise of new insight. These volumes stimulate new ways to think about science by providing a neutral forum for discourse -- within and across many institutions and fields.
