Activities

The APSI members conduct research and publish their findings in peer-reviewed journals, books, and scientific conferences. We also conduct public outreach through writing our own popular science and give interviews to the media, as well as teaching and giving public talks.

You can either download the full list of APSI publications and activities (in PDF format) or browse through the research publications below. (Note: List last updated on May 25th, 2018)
