Journal and Proceedings of the Royal Society of New South Wales

Information for authors

Papers (other than those specially invited by the Editorial Board) will only be considered if the content is either substantially new material that has not been published previously, or is a review of a major research programme. In the case of papers presenting new research, the author must certify that the material has not been submitted concurrently elsewhere nor is likely to be published elsewhere in substantially the same form. In the case of papers reviewing a major research programme, the author must certify that the material has not been published substantially in the same form elsewhere and that permission for the Society to publish has been granted by all copyright holders. Letters to the Editor and short notes may also be submitted for publication.

Manuscripts are only accepted in digital format and should be emailed to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

If the file is too large to email, please contact the editor, at the above email address.

Manuscripts will be reviewed by the Editor, in consultation with the Editorial Board, to decide whether the paper will be considered for publication in the Journal. Manuscripts are subjected to peer review by at least one independent reviewer. In the event of initial rejection, manuscripts may be sent to other reviewers.

The Society does not require authors to transfer the copyright of their manuscript to the Society but authors are required to grant the Society an unrestricted licence to reproduce in any form manuscripts accepted for publication in the Journal and Proceedings. Enquiries relating to copyright or reproduction of an article should be directed to the author.

Issues are scheduled to be published in June and December each year. An electronic version is posted to the web site and this is the formal publication date. The printed version is published 4-6 weeks after the electronic version is published.

Style guide and templates

Authors intending to submit papers for publication in the Journal and Proceedings are referred to the style guide that outlines formatting and submission requirements.  Authors who use Thomson Reuters' EndNote bibliographic software may download an EndNote style template that is specifically designed for the Journal and Proceedings.  Two Microsoft Word templates are available for download, one for refereed papers, the other for thesis abstracts.  Papers should be submitted using these templates.

Papers for consideration are only accepted electronically.  Paper manuscripts will not be accepted and will be returned unread to the corresponding author.
