The American Chemical Society is chartered by the U.S. Congress and is a global leader in providing access to chemistry-related research. ACS encourages each of its 164,000 members to speak simply about their science and its importance to all of our lives.
The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the world’s largest multidisciplinary scientific society, was founded in 1848 and includes some 261 affiliated groups serving 10 million individuals. Its mission is to “advance science and serve society.”
