Author & date of last revision: Roy Anderson on 30 November 2011

The Journal of Conchology is the world's oldest continuing publication on the subject. Published twice a year, it contains scientific papers  and short communications on molluscs with emphasis on promoting conservation, biogeography and taxonomy. The contents cover, typically, descriptions of new species from anywhere in the world and reports concerning the ecology,  distribution and status of molluscs.  Both living and fossil molluscs are dealt with.

In addition the Journal includes the official proceedings of the Society, obituaries and book reviews. Being a scientific publication papers are published only after review by referees. The Journal is subscribed to by learned institutions world-wide, and is a flagship publication for the Society. Members and non-members may submit contributions to the Honorary Editor.
