Historical Records of Australian Science documents the history of science, pure and applied, in Australia and the southwest Pacific. It also features biographical memoirs of deceased Fellows of the Australian Academy of Science commissioned by the Council of the Academy, and includes an annual bibliography of the history of Australian science.
The journal began in 1966 as an irregular publication under the title Records of the Australian Academy of Science, the present name being adopted in 1980. Since then, the journal has appeared on a regular basis, at first annually and, since 1991, twice a year.
Published by CSIRO Publishing on behalf of the Academy, the journal is available online by subscription.
