The Journal and Proceedings of the Royal Society of New South Wales

The Society's journal is one of the oldest peer-reviewed publications in the Southern Hemisphere.  Much innovative research of the 19th and early 20th centuries (e.g. Lawrence Hargrave's work on flight) was first brought to the attention of the scientific world through the Journal and Proceedings of The Royal Society of New South Wales.  In the last few decades specialist journals have become preferred for highly technical work but the Journal and Proceedings remains an important publication for multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary work. 

The Journal and Proceedings are exchanged with hundreds of institutions worldwide.  Currently issues are published around June and December each year.   

The Society welcomes scholarly work to be considered for publication in the Journal. (See the links at the right for detailed information for authors).

Abstracts of doctoral theses  are also considered by the editorial board and are most welcome.
