Notice to Authors of Papers for the Transactions of
the Royal Society of New Zealand

The following resolutions were adopted by the Standing Committee of the Royal Society of New Zealand at the meeting on 23rd February, 1942:—


Until further notice no paper, the estimated cost of which exceeds £ 20 for text and plates, will be accepted. Authors should, therefore, be as concise as possible; introductions; references to published work, discussions, and summaries should be brief and to the point; only essential figures and tables should be included.


Papers not fully following the “Instructions to Authors” given in the Transactions Vol. 67, Part 1, 1937, will be returned to the authors for revision or re-drafting. Authors should not pass on their responsibilities to the editors.


Citations must be in the form prescribed, properly arranged and punctuated.


Referees will report not only on the general suitability of the paper for publication, but will suggest where condensation or excision is required.


Papers will, in general, be published in order of priority of final acceptance.

The approximate cost of a paper may be estimated as follows:—

Each double-spaced foolscap page 12/-
Each plate £ 2/3/-
Ruled tables extra per printed page 9/-
