The Royal Society Journals

The Royal Society‘s international, peer reviewed journals publish high quality science and provide an excellent service to authors and readers.

The Royal Society‘s origins lie in a 1660 ‘invisible college’ of natural philosophers and physicians. Today The Royal Society is the UK’s national science academy and a Fellowship of some 1,600 of the world’s most eminent scientists.

The early years of the Society saw revolutionary advancements in the conduct and communication of science. Hooke’s Micrographia and the first issue of Philosophical Transactions were published in 1665 alone. Philosophical Transactions, which established the important concepts of scientific priority and peer review, is now the oldest continuously-published science journal in the world.

The leading scientific lights of the past four centuries can all be found among the 8,000 Fellows elected to the Society to date. From Newton to Darwin to Einstein, Hawking and beyond, pioneers and paragons in their fields are elected by their peers. Current Fellows include Jocelyn Bell Burnell, Sophie Wilson and Tim Berners-Lee.
