Aim & Scope
Accademia dei Lincei was founded in 1603 by Marchese Federico Cesi. The Linceo (lynx) was chosen as the symbol of the institution, because of the presumed keenness of its eye. The aim of the Accademia was, and still is, the study of scientific disciplines from a global point of view, and the fostering of cooperation among researchers in any field all over the world. Some 540 members, both Italian and non-Italian, belong to the Accademia, and are grouped into two classes: Scienze Matematiche, Fisiche e Naturali and Scienze Morali, Storiche e Filologiche. From its beginnings, the Accademia has drawn together some of the most important people who contributed to building the history of humanity, including Galileo Galilei, Enrico Fermi, Albert Einstein, T.S. Eliot, Camillo Golgi, Luigi Einaudi, Quintino Sella, Giulio Natta, Louis Pasteur, Charles Darwin, Benedetto Croce, Vito Volterra, Carlo Rubbia, Rita Levi- Montalcini. Springer will further improve the diffusion of the journal Rendiconti Lincei di Scienze Fisiche e Naturali.
