Aim & Scope:
Molluscan Research is an international journal for the publication of authoritative papers and review articles on all aspects of molluscan research, including biology, systematics, morphology, physiology, ecology, conservation, biogeography, genetics, molecular biology and palaeontology.
While the scope of the journal is worldwide, there is emphasis on studies relating to Australasia and the Indo-west Pacific, including East and South East Asia. The journal’s scope includes revisionary papers, monographs, reviews, theoretical papers and briefer communications. Monographic studies of up to 73 printed pages may also be considered.
The journal has been published since 1957 (as the Journal of the Malacological Society of Australia until 1993). It is free to members of the Malacological Society of Australasia and the Society for the Study of Molluscan Diversity.
Peer review policy All research articles in this journal have undergone rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and double-blind refereeing by at least two referees.
