Transactions of the New York Academy of Sciences is an historical publication by the New York Academy of Sciences. Published as two series (Series 1, volumes 1–16, 1881–1897, and Series 2, volumes 1–41, 1938–1983), Transactions presents the scholarly and scientific proceedings of the various Academy scientific "sections" (sections of anthropology, biology, physics and chemistry, oceanography and meteorology, mathematics and engineering, geology and mineralogy) and of other scientific events and proceedings at the New York Academy of Sciences.
A sister journal to Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, Transactions of the New York Academy of Sciences provides a window on Academy scientific proceedings that cannot be found in Annals, and thus is a rich history of science in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. See all volumes.
