In this era of globalization, international issues cut across essentially all aspects of the APS and physics community.
National physics societies and international physics organizations call upon their members as well as scientists across the globe to abide by the principles that are crucial to successful international scientific cooperation.
To recognize the contributions of APS members worldwide, the Society seeks recommendations for physicists to feature as APS Global Spotlight Members who are serving physicists in their local community, country, or region.
See the APS opportunities, resources, and other helpful information for physicists in your country or region on the APS International Engagement Around the World tool.
New resources are continually added to this tool...and we want to hear from you! Please share your feedback and ideas on ways this tool can help you and your physics community at firstname.lastname@example.org.
APS launched a Task Force on Expanding International Engagement to examine how the Society could increase its international engagement and better serve its members, the physics community, and society at large. This resulted in a report and recommendations that were adopted by the APS Council of Representatives.
APS seeks to serve as a Welcoming Global Hub for the world’s physicists. By "global hub" we don't presume to be the world's physical society, but instead, offer a welcoming community for the world’s physicists to connect with each other and advance their shared interests. In this spirit, APS will pursue expanded partnerships and collaborations with other national physics societies and international physics organizations.
Reciprocal societies are national physical societies that have signed an agreement with APS to exchange certain membership privileges. APS members may take advantage of the following benefits from reciprocal societies:
