The Atti della Accademia Peloritana dei Pericolanti - Classe di Scienze Fisiche, Matematiche e Naturali is a serial publication issued by the Accademia Peloritana dei Pericolanti (APP), a scientific society formed at Messina (Italy) in 1729. The current APP transactions started out as periodic news sheets containing the notes and reports presented by the members of the divisions (Classi) into which the Academy has been and still is organized, according to subject areas. The more recent historical thread of the present publication can be traced back to the Atti della Reale Accademia Peloritana (ISSN 0365-592X), regularly published with annual frequency from 1878. In 1936 this latter publication split into five sections, one of which was the Atti della Reale Accademia Peloritana. Classe di Scienze Fisiche, Matematiche e Biologiche (ISSN 0365-5520). Then, in 1943 the Division of Physical, Mathematical and Biological Sciences was separated into two autonomous divisions: “Physical, Mathematical and Natural Sciences” and “Medical and Biological Sciences”. Correspondingly, two new publications stemmed from the former one, one of which was the Atti della Accademia Peloritana dei Pericolanti - Classe di Scienze Fisiche, Matematiche e Naturali, whose printed version (ISSN 0365-0359) was replaced by the current online version (ISSN 1825-1242) in 2005.
