Professional Societies in Physics play an important role not only in scholarly communication and serving the physics communities needs, but also in other public areas as well.
The role of these professional societies can range from publishing and organising conferences to affecting physics education, science policy, and public outreach. Publishing is the largest activity of Physics Societies followed by organization and implementation of scientific meetings and conferences.
Collaboration within research institutions and national laboratories is an integral part of scientific discovery, especially in the field of High Energy Physics.
National Laboratories benefit from grants and government funding, provide the tools and knowledge necessary for large experiments, host large repositories and engage in publishing, play roles in improving science education, policy, and outreach, and aid in facilitating international activities and collaborations.
Unites States of America
The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-two Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
