• Founded in 1934 by Sir C V Raman the Indian Academy of Sciences, Bangalore was registered as a Society on 27 April 1934 with the main objective of promoting the progress and upholding the cause of science. The Academy began functioning with 65 Founding Fellows and the formal inauguration took place at the Indian Institute of Science.

    On the same afternoon its first general meeting of Fellows was held during which Sir C V Raman was elected President and the draft resolution of the Academy was adopted.

    In the same month of 1934, the first issue of the Academy’s earliest publication was published. The Academy from its very beginnings has taken great interest and initiative in publishing science research and today publishes 10 science journals in different disciplines, uses an online submission and review management system that’s trackable, papers are peer reviewed and published content is made available online and open access.

    The Academy’s contribution to science and society is also reflected through its policies, values and its range of activities which include:

      The India-based Neutrino Observatory (INO) is a mega-science research project planned to be undertaken by scientists from more than 25 Indian Central and State Universities and Research Institutes. It is a purely scientific research project of fundamental significance, and one that has been supported and approved by the Government of India.

      The Science Academies of India are strongly supportive of the establishment of such an experimental facility for its intrinsic scientific value. More

      Thumbnail 1Among the activities undertaken by the Academy to promote and disseminate science, Publications has occupied the pride of the place. Indeed, the first issue of the Academy’s earliest publication titled Academy Proceedings, a monthly, first appeared in July 1934, the very month that the Academy was formally founded. Publication of science journals has since remained an important activity. Today the Academy publishes 12 science journals in various disciplines. Starting 2007, ten of the Academy journals are being co-published with Springer. The Academy also publishes two online-only journals – the Indian Academy of Sciences Conference Series (first online in December 2017) and DIALOGUE: Science, Scientists, and Society (first online in January 2018).
