World Scientific broke new ground in 1991 when it signed a memorandum of agreement with the Nobel Foundation to publish the entire series of Nobel Lectures in all subjects – physics and astronomy, chemistry, physiology or medicine, economic sciences and literature. The company has published and distributed the Nobel Lectures series worldwide, making the scientific, literary and humanitarian achievements of numerous Nobel laureates accessible to a wide audience.
Apart from the Nobel lectures, the company has collaborated with many Nobel laureates in producing best-selling books since the 1980s. Many serve as our editorial advisors and book series editors, while others have contributed articles and research papers to our journals.
World Scientific is also the exclusive distributor for The National Academies Press (based in Washington, D.C.) in the Asia Pacific (with the exception of Japan, New Zealand and Australia).
