The American Journal of Science (AJS) is America's longest-running
scientific journal, having been published continuously since its conception in 1818, by Professor Benjamin Silliman, who edited and financed it himself. Until 1880 it was also known as the "American Journal of Science and Arts", but its focus was always on natural sciences and especially on geologyand related subjects. AJS is a high-impact journal, boasting an impact factor of 3.607 [2003 figure, source: Thomson ISI] — making it the highest ranked peer-reviewed earth science journal, excluding review-oriented journals.
In early years, the journal was often referred to as "Silliman's Journal", and the publication became associated with
Yale Universitydue to his long tenure there (1804-1853). The editorship long remained in the family of Professor Silliman, as he was assisted by his son, Benjamin Silliman, Jr., from 1838. On the death of the elder Silliman in 1864, he was succeeded as chief editor by his son-in-law, James Dwight Dana, and then from 1895 till 1926 by Dana's son Edward Salisbury Dana. Associate editors included the botanist Asa Grayand the zoologist Louis Agassiz.
The current editors are Jay J. Ague and Danny M. Rye, both professors of geology and geophysics at Yale.
