Scholarly Societies Project


This is one of a set of subject pages in the

Scholarly Societies Project, which facilitates access to websites of scholarly societies across the world. A set of guidelines is used in determining whether to include resources.

Links to websites of scholarly societies in Physics are given below. The URL-Stability Index for this collection of Physics sites is 132.0/138 = 95.7%. The URL-stability index for each site below is given graphically in the left-hand column as the URL-stability rank for that site.

See also: the Atmospheric & Meteorological Sciences, Medical Physics & Technology, and Material, Metal & Mineral Sciences categories.
