N2 - We study affine Jacobi structures (brackets) on an affine bundle ** : *A* → *M*, i.e. Jacobi brackets that close on affine functions. We prove that if the rank of *A* is non–zero, there is a one–toone correspondence between affine Jacobi structures on *A* and Lie algebroid structures on the vector bundle of affine functionals. In the case rank *A* = 0, it is shown that there is a one–to–one correspondence between affine Jacobi structures on *A* and local Lie algebras on *A* ^{+}. Some examples and applications, also for the linear case, are discussed. For a special type of affine Jacobi structures which are canonically exhibited (strongly–affine or affine–homogeneous Jacobi structures) over a real vector space of finite dimension, we describe the leaves of its characteristic foliation as the orbits of an affine representation. These affine Jacobi structures can be viewed as an analog of the Kostant–Arnold–Liouville linear Poisson structure on the dual space of a real finite–dimensional Lie algebra.
