been active on numerous committees of the Society. She has also served in an editorial advisory capacity for John Wiley Interscience Publishers as advisor in theoretical chemistry ( 1965-1980) and was editor of the Benchmark Book Series in Physical Chemistry ( 1977-1988). She has been on the editorial boards of Molecular Pharmacology ( 1970- 1988) and the International Journal of Quantum Chemistry ( 1967- 1985). She has been a member of the editorial advisory board of the Journal of Computational Chemistry since 1984 and the Journal of Explosives since 1981. Kaufman has been a consultant to the National Institutes of Health since 1970 in the area of quantum chemical calculations of molecules of pharmacological and biological significance, and in the field of computers and super- computers. In 1989 she was appointed a member of the National Science Foundation Evaluation Committee for NSFNET, the network that links the NSF supercomputers to each other and to the world. Joyce Kaufman is widely published and has presented numerous invited lectures at international conferences, research institutes, and academies of science throughout the world. She has achieved a high level of success in her career and with her family.
