Committee on Scientific Publications

Committee on Scientific Publications: The Committee on Scientific Publications consists of eight members nominated by the Committee on Committees and appointed by the President-Elect to staggered four-year terms. The President-Elect appoints a Vice Chair among these eight members who are starting their first or second year. The Vice Chair becomes Chair and Past Chair in subsequent years. The President-Elect also appoints a member of the presidential line to serve a two-year term as a member of the Committee. In addition, the Committee includes two Librarians appointed by the Publisher to equally staggered four-year terms. The Committee has at least two in-person meetings each year, supplemented by regular teleconferences as needed.

APS Committees

The American Physical Society is a volunteer-driven organization. Since 1899, physicists have contributed their time and resources to running the APS in cooperation with a minimal full-time staff. Volunteers are the backbone of the Society. They form the character and direct the Society's progress and development. All APS committees operate on a calendar year basis and committee terms run from January 1 through December 31.
