The Monographic Series of the Australasian Palaeontologists



About the Journal
Initiated in 1983, the Memoirs are a monographic series published by AAP. Until 2015 it was known as Memoirs of the Association of Australasian Palaeontologists.

The Memoirs series publishes peer-reviewed papers on all aspects of palaeontology and its applications in the earth and biological sciences, including taxonomy, biostratigraphy, vertebrate and invertebrate palaeontology, ichnology, palaeobotany, palynology, palaeobiology, palaeoecology, palaeobiogeography and biogeochemistry among others. The Memoir series is designed for longer monographic treatments but will also consider thematic sets of papers and commonly publishes conference proceedings.
