Australian Zoologist

The Royal Zoological Society of NSW publishes a fully refereed scientific journal, Australian Zoologist, specialising in topics relevant to Australian zoology. The Australian Zoologist was first published by the Society in 1914, making it the oldest Australian journal specialising in zoological topics. The scope of the journal has increased substantially in the last 30 years, and it now attracts papers on a wide variety of zoological, ecological and environmentally related topics. Australian Zoologist is published three times per year.

All papers published in Australian Zoologist are available digitally online, with the vast majority open access. To access papers published since 1985, use the link below.
