Award description

The Science Communication Awards of the American Institute of Physics (AIP) were established in the 1960s to recognize some of the best science writing of the previous year. Awards were originally given based on the occupation of the author, but are now categorized by format.

Multiple awards made to article-length writing do not appear on this list (since they're not yet in LibraryThing). See the AIP Science Communication Awards website for a complete list.
