In the Academy Council meeting held in December 2011, the proposal of creating an 'Oral history archive' was discussed and finalized for implementation. The archive is intended to be a repository of audio and video documentaries of some of the leading scientists of the country from among Academy's fellowship. It is hoped that the documented glimpses of experiences and careers of eminent personalities, while being a historical record, will also be of inspirational value to new generations of students and scientists. To start with, Academy undertook the production of video memoirs on Professor Roddam Narasmha and Dr D. Balasubramanian, two past presidents of the Academy.
A revised version of the document 'Scientific Values: Ethical Guidelines and Procedures' has been produced by the Academy's Panel on Scientific Values. For more details, see the Academy Committee on Scientific Values page.

The domain part of the email address of all email addresses used by the office of Indian Academy of Sciences, including those of the staff, the journals, various programmes, and Current Science, has changed from 'ias.ernet.in' (or 'academy.ias.ernet.in') to 'ias.ac.in'. Thus, for example, the address email@example.com (or firstname.lastname@example.org) has changed to email@example.com (without the string 'academy'). Please take note of this change.
