About meThe tradition of scholarly publishing at the Smithsonian dates back to the Institution’s origin. In keeping with James Smithson’s stipulation that his bequest to the United States be “for the increase and diffusion of knowledge,” Joseph Henry, the first Secretary of the Smithsonian (1846–1878), initiated in 1848 the Institution’s first publication, Smithsonian Contributions to Knowledge. The tradition continues today with Smithsonian Institution Scholarly Press (SISP).

Operating within the Office of the Deputy Under Secretary for Collections and Interdisciplinary Support (DUSCIS), SISP together with its Publications Oversight Board support publications by Smithsonian scholars in fields closely related to Smithsonian research and collections, particularly science, art and art history, aviation and space, and history and material culture.

The Smithsonian may archive materials posted on this website pursuant to its document retention policies. By posting content, you are giving the Smithsonian and those authorized by the Smithsonian permission to use or modify it for any educational, promotional, or other standard museum purpose, in media of all kinds whether now known or later developed.

About my librarySISP has a marketing and distribution partnership with Random House. This allows us to keep many of the Smithsonian’s respected scholarly book titles in active circulation. New titles that feature the work of Smithsonian scholars in the sciences and humanities will also be developed under this partnership.

The titles in our library are those that are in current distribution.
