Biography/History

Philosophical Magazine is one the oldest and longest-running scientific periodicals, appearing monthly from 1798 to the present day. New series, with volume numbers restarting at 1, began in 1827, 1832, 1851, 1876, 1901, 1926, and 1955. The name of this British journal derives from when "natural philosophy" embraced all aspects of science: astronomy, biology, botany, chemistry, geology, medicine, physics, and zoology, in addition to natural phenomena such as aurora, earthquakes, lightning strikes, and volcanic eruptions. Notable articles by Michael Faraday; James Prescott Joule; William Thomson, 1st Baron Kelvin; John William Strutt, 3rd Baron Rayleigh; Albert Abraham Michelson; Johannes Robert Rydberg; Pieter Zeeman; J.J. Thomson; Ernest Rutherford; Robert Andrews Millikan; Niels Bohr; and Louis-Victor-Pierre-Raymond de Broglie, have appeared in the pages of the journal. All papers that have appeared in  Philosophical Magazine and  Philosophical Magazine Letters (the Letters section was launched in 1987) are now available online at: www.informaworld.com/philmagarchive. (From Professor E.A. Davis' introduction to the journal.)

Authors included in this collection include Sir William Lawrence Bragg (1890-1971), Australian-born British physicist and X-ray crystallographer; Lars Vegard (1880-1963), Norwegian physicist; Joseph John Thomson (1856-1940), English physicist and Nobel laureate in physics, credited with the discovery and identification of the electron; and Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman (1888–1970), an Indian physicist, who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1930.

Scope and Contents

This collection consists of galley proofs of research articles for Philosophical Magazine from issues published in 1920 to 1921.

Most of the galley proofs have proofreader edits and author corrections on them. Also included along with the galley proofs for some of the articles are typescripts (most also containing handwritten edits or additions) or manuscripts, as well as illustrations (usually graphs and diagrams) accompanying the articles. Unless otherwise indicated by the inclusion of "manuscript" or "typescript" in the file name, the file consists of galley proofs for the article.

Galley proofs are stamped with "Taylor & Francis, Printers & Publishers, Red Lion Court, Fleet St. London;" and the date, probably of approval of the galley proof. The galleys also have a number stamped on the top and bottom of each page.

When searching the finding aid for names of authors, researchers should search for last name, first name initial, and middle name initial as names are included in the finding aid exactly as they are printed on the galley proofs. In the case of articles with more than one author, the author printed first in the galley proof is first in the file name, followed by the other authors.
