The Academy will retain responsibility for acquisitions and editorial control. First published in 1823, the Annals are the nation's longest continuously-published scientific journal in America. The Annals series is ranked by the Institute for Scientific Information among the top two percent of sources cited in the scientific literature.

"Our missions complement each other well and together, we are committed to publishing the highest-quality scientific content, attracting the best authors, and maximizing the international reach of the publication."
