The Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences is one of the oldest scientific journals in the United States and among the most cited of multidisciplinary scientific serials. Continuously published since 1823, the Annals is the premier publication of the Academy, offering the proceedings of conferences sponsored by the NYAS as well as those of other scientific organizations.

New ideas are frequently unveiled at conferences, and the proceedings literature, even when speculative, can provide both a window on the research activity of the moment and important insights into the future direction of research.

With 28 volumes published annually by Blackwell Publishing, the Annals provides multidisciplinary perspectives on research of current scientific interest with far-reaching implications for the wider scientific community and society at large. The Annals' scope, although primarily focused on biomedical areas, extends into fields as diverse as astronomy, psychology, anthropology, and philosophy. Each publication assembles the best thinking of key contributors for a comprehensive treatment of a field of investigation at a time when emerging developments offer the promise of new insight. These volumes stimulate new ways to think about science by providing a neutral forum for discourse—within and across many institutions and fields.

The Institute for Scientific Information ranks the Annals in the top 2% of sources cited in the scientific literature. The Annals' impact and immediacy factors have increased steadily in the last seven years, as has its ranking within the category of multidisciplinary journals. Another measure of a journal's effectiveness is its "shelf life" (or cited half-life, measured by citation rate over several years); the Annals cited half-life is comparable to that of a primary source research journal.
