Australasian Science is Australia’s longest-running scientific publication. It has been Australia’s authority on science since 1938, when it was first published as The Australian Journal of Science by the Australian National Research Council, which was the forerunner of the Australian Academy of Science.

Australasian Science is the only magazine is dedicated to Australian and New Zealand science. Its Patrons are Nobel Laureate Prof Peter Doherty and ABC broadcaster Robyn Williams – representing excellence in science and its communication.

The magazine's mission is to publish world-class science from the region's most inspiring minds. Each edition features a broad range of articles from scientists writing about their own work using their own words: no hype or spin – just the facts. We encourage the scientists to write in plain language explaining the significance of their work to the general public.

Australasian Science also boasts an outstanding team of expert columnists covering astronomy, politics, ecology, neuroscience, evidence-based medicine, innovation, bioethics, critical thinking and palaeontology.

Written in simple language, Australasian Science provides a unique local perspective on scientific developments and issues.
