Abstract : The great majority of papers on the ionosphere published in recognized periodical journals through 1960 are listed. The period covered goes back to the important pioneer studies of 1925, and in some cases to earlier work. Articles in symposium volumes, books, or technical reports are not included. Papers are included if they deal with ionospheric radio propagation, radio studies of the ionosphere, or physics of the ionosphere important to radio studies. Examples of such topics are radio studies of the aurora, rocket studies of the upper atmosphere, eclipse effects on radio propagation, recombination and diffusion processes in the F region, solar effects on the ionosphere, and the formation of ionized meteor trails. Examples of topics excluded are many studies of the geomagnetic field, of the aurora by visual and spectroscopic methods, of solar radio astronomy, and of the design of communications systems.
