ARC Aerospace Research Central (AIAA’s New Electronic Library )

ARC Logo

The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics is proud to announce the initial launch of its new electronic library, Aerospace Research Central (ARC). Hosted on the Atypon Literatum platform, ARC offers users the ability to save and schedule searches, download citations, track citations, save articles as “favorites,” and sign up for alerts. In addition to AIAA journals, ARC will also consolidate access to AIAA books and ebooks, technical standards, and meeting papers. Beginning on 13 September 2012 access to ARC and your previously subscribed or purchased content will be available by direct navigation to and authenticated by the IP address on file with AIAA. On Wednesday, 12 September AIAA will begin redirecting internal links from its existing electronic library to ARC pages. By 0800 hrs EDT, Thursday, 13 September all redirects will be complete and access to content will be restored.

More than just a new name, the new site is being developed using Literatum™ by Atypon®. Literatum is the electronic publishing platform of choice for the American Chemical Society, the American Society of Civil Engineers, the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, MIT University Press, the New England Journal of Medicine, and many others.

ARC will allow you to search for and retrieve more than 75 years of aerospace information that is currently found in the AIAA Electronic Library and the AIAA eBook library:

  • AIAA Journals
  • Library of Flight books
  • AIAA Standards
  • AIAA Conference Papers
  • Journals of the Institute of the Aeronautical Sciences
  • Journals of the American Rocket Society
  • AIAA Education Series titles
  • Progress in Astronautics and Aeronautics book series

You will also find selected materials from the International Astronautical Congress, the International Council of the Aeronautical Sciences, the International Conference on Space Operations, International Symposium on Air Breathing Engines, and other conferences for which AIAA was the official publisher.
