Centers Covering a Number of Areas of Science

Conference paper


At one time, years ago, it was possible for a single organization to undertake the compilation of all existing numerical data for the physical sciences. The International Critical Tables completed such an endeavor. The Landolt-Börnstein Tabellen (2.1) through the sixth edition aimed at covering all of the physical sciences. The Tables Annuelles des Constantes Sélectionées (2.2) also originally had wide coverage. But today no single organization can dream of tackling the evaluation and publication of data for all major areas of science. However, some current publication efforts do cover numerical property values in several, or many, areas of science. The organizations with such programs are described in this section. Their individual publications are discussed in detail under the pertinent sections of this volume.
