Physics & Geophysics

    The ADS Physics database, currently the largest of the four ADS databases, contains abstracts in the fields of Physics and Geophysics. This database was originally created from a dataset of abstracts spanning the years 1975 to 1995, provided by NASA's Science and Technical Index (STI). In the years since then, the ADS has continued to include abstracts and references provided by journal publishers, including Elsevier Science, the Institute of Physics (IOP), the American Physics Society (APS), the American Institute of Physics (AIP), the Optical Society of America (OSA), Academic Press, Springer, and World Scientific.
