Comptes Rendus de l'Académie Internationale de Philosophie des Sciences
Comptes Rendus de l'Académie Internationale de Philosophie des Sciences (C.R.AIPS) are a book series published by the Académie International de Philosophie des Sciences. The print volumes can be ordered via College Publications, the online volumes are available here at no cost of either authors or readers ("diamond open access").
The Académie Internationale de Philosophie des Sciences (AIPS) was created in 1947 by Stanislas Dockx in order to reach a synthesis on fundamental questions of the philosophy of the sciences in an interdisciplinary manner. Among its early members were many famous philosophers and scientists, among them Paul Bernays, Evert Willem Beth, Józef Maria Bocheński, Niels Bohr, Émile Borel, L. E. J. Brouwer, Louis de Broglie, Albert Einstein, Ferdinand Gonseth, Edward Arthur Milne, and Hermann Weyl. The main instrument to bring together philosophers and scientists and reflect on fundamental questions were the regular conferences of the AIPS, usually resulting in a proceedings volume published with different publishers.
Academic publishing is currently undergoing fundamental changes. Traditional publication models that guaranteed dissemination of ideas in the past do not serve this purpose anymore.
As a consequence, the AIPS decided in their General Assembly in Prague on 13 August 2019 to create this electronic publication series as an open access online publication venue.
This publication project is supported by the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation at the Universiteit van Amsterdam which provides the online hosting of this website. In addition to the online open access publication, a print version of the volumes will be available for order via print-on-demand by the London-based publisher College Publications. The editor of the book series is Benedikt Löwe.
