Journal of Natural Science Collections

The Journal of Natural Science Collections is the peer-reviewed journal published by NatSCA, once a year. The first volume of the journal was published in December 2013 (see associated news story here).

The Journal of Natural Science Collections is a place for those working with these collections to share projects and practices that will benefit the museum community. The Journal represents all areas of work with natural science collections, and includes articles on best practice and latest research across disciplines, including conservation, curation, learning, and exhibitions. Articles should be relevant and accessible to our diverse membership. All submissions are peer reviewed, resulting in high quality articles.
