Physics and Astronomy Classification Scheme

Some classification news.
The 2008 edition of the AIP's Physics and Astronomy Classification Scheme (PACS)--an essential tool for classification and efficient retrieval of scientific literature--has been released. PACS, used by AIP and other international publishers, is a hierarchical subject classification scheme, comprised of ten broad subject categories subdivided into narrower categories. For PACS 2008, five categories received extensive revisions based on the contributions of experts from the physics community.

We have also prepared a Special Edition of PACS, which contains embedded mapping instructions for transforming the deleted 2006 PACS codes into the new 2008 codes.

Free downloads.
