University Science Books is a leading publisher of textbooks and course materials for upper level undergraduate and graduate courses that span the physical sciences.

With core texts in physics, chemistry, environmental sciences and engineering, University Science Books has helped thousands of professors train the next generation of scientists. In January 2021, University Science Books joined the AIP Publishing family.

AIP Publishing is a wholly owned not-for-profit subsidiary of the American Institute of Physics (AIP). Our mission is to support the charitable, scientific and educational purposes of AIP through scholarly publishing activities in the fields of the physical and related sciences on its own behalf and on behalf of our member societies and publishing partners. Our portfolio comprises highly regarded, peer-reviewed journals, including a growing portfolio of Open Access titles, that cover all areas of the physical sciences, books, and conference proceedings. AIP Publishing lives by a promise to researchers: to ensure that all findings with the potential to advance the physical sciences are presented, promoted, and permanently available as the building blocks of future discoveries.
