AIAA Archive Access

April 7th, 2015 by Robert Heyer-Gray

With the recent purchase of the AIAA (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics) Archive and the predecessor titles, our journal access through ARC now contains:

  • AIAA Journal (1963–current): The journal that was launched along with AIAA in 1963, covering pioneering theoretical developments and experimental results across a far-reaching range of disciplines.
  • Journal of Aircraft (1964–current): Focusing on major advances in aircraft technology, this journal covers major development in general aviation, military and civilian aircraft, STOL and V/STOL aircraft, subsonic, supersonic, transonic, and hypersonic aircraft as well as applications on aircraft technology to related fields.
  • Journal of Energy (1977–1983): You can now search ARC and retrieve papers from this out-of-print journal that was devoted to advancing the knowledge of terrestrial and space applications of all forms of energy, including its production, transformation, and conservation.
  • Journal of Guidance, Control, and Dynamics (1978–current): Keep pace with the research and engineering applications that are driving new generations of high-performance air and space vehicles — both manned and unmanned.
  • Journal of Hydronautics (1967–1981): You can now search ARC and retrieve papers from this out-of-print journal that explored the theoretical and experimental knowledge of hydrodynamics, including propulsion systems and the design of underwater vehicles, highlighting the intersection between ocean and aerospace science and engineering.
  • Journal of Propulsion and Power (1985–current): Discover advances in air-breathing, electric, and advanced propulsion, plus power generation and conversion, and terrestrial energy systems in the Journal of Propulsion and Power.
  • Journal of Spacecraft and Rockets (1964–current): This journal features the best new work in spacecraft and missile systems (tactical and strategic), including subsystems, applications, missions, environmental interactions, and space sciences.
  • Journal of Thermophysics and Heat Transfer (1987–2002): Explore the latest developments in thermal energy transfer and storage — in gases, liquids, and solids.

AIAA’s Predecessor Society Journal Archives

  • Bulletin of the American Interplanetary Society (1930–1932): This bimonthly newsletter of the American Interplanetary Society (later known as the American Rocket Society) shared the wonders of space travel with the fledgling society’s members.
  • Astronautics (1932–1944): Published monthly by the American Interplanetary Society, this formal newsletter replaced the Bulletin of the American Interplanetary Society.
  • Journal of the Aeronautical Sciences (1934–1957) and Journal of the Aerospace Sciences (1958-1962): The monthly journal of the Institute of the Aeronautical Science (later the Institute of the Aerospace Sciences) published scientific and technical articles along with member news.
  • Journal of Jet Propulsion (1954–1958): This journal published by the American Rocket Society was devoted to the advancement of the field of jet propulsion through the publication of original scientific papers and also shared society news.
  • ARS Journal (1959–1962): Originally published under the title Journal of Jet Propulsion the name change of this journal reflected the ever-broadening field of interest of the American Rocket Society. Papers were chosen for publication based on their pertinence to the general field of astronautics, the future significance of the research, and importance to the members of the society and the profession at large.
