Philip H. Abelson served as Editor-in-Chief of Science magazine from 1962 to 1984. During his tenure, he implemented more efficient peer review procedures for scientific papers submitted to the magazine and encouraged a more active style of science reporting that included broader coverage of science and policy issues. These records include correspondence, memos, editorials, and minutes of editorial board meetings. A number of Dr. Abelson's professional papers, including speeches and other materials not related to his work with Science, were donated by AAAS to the Library of Congress in early 2001.
His finding aid will be available shortly
