Research Publications

 

Auckland Museum research is published within a wide variety of specialist areas in the form of peer-reviewed articles, blog or topic pages, technical reports, and creative works.

 

Staff also contribute to and edit the Museum's own publications: Records of the Auckland Museum and the monograph series, Bulletins of the Auckland Museum. These scholarly peer-reviewed serials are an important part of the Museum's statutory role to advance and promote cultural and scientific scholarship and research.

 

 

 

Records of the Auckland Museum

Records of the Auckland Museum

Records of the Auckland Museum (formerly Records of the Auckland Institute and Museum) is our main academic journal. Its 450+ articles incorporate the results of original research on our extensive collections, as well as research by Museum staff and other subject-matter experts. The journal has been published more or less annually since 1930, and includes contributions from more than 150 authors and co-authors dealing mostly with zoology, archaeology, ethnology, and botany.

The articles contain important accounts of archaeological excavations and ethnographic objects, and descriptions of nearly 700 new taxa (mostly new animal species and subspecies)—a major contribution to the documentation of New Zealand's biodiversity.

The Bulletin of the Auckland Museum is an occasional publication and contains the results of original research dealing with material in the collections of Auckland Museum, and research carried out by Museum staff members in their particular subjects. All papers are refereed.

The Bulletin is distributed, largely by exchange, to libraries at about 250 academic institutions throughout the world.
