The Royal Society Publishing

The Royal Society is a Fellowship of many of the world's most eminent scientists and is the oldest scientific academy in continuous existence.

The Society’s fundamental purpose, reflected in its founding Charters of the 1660s, is to recognise, promote, and support excellence in science and to encourage the development and use of science for the benefit of humanity.

The Society has played a part in some of the most fundamental, significant, and life-changing discoveries in scientific history and Royal Society scientists continue to make outstanding contributions to science in many research areas.

The Royal Society journals: inspirational authors and ground-breaking science”


"A collection of papers covering a broad range of themes in solid dynamics, including multi-field effects in both linear and nonlinear elasticity"

The collection of papers presented on the link above covers a broad range of themes in solid dynamics, including multi-field effects in both linear and nonlinear elasticity. It has been prepared as a tribute to the memory of Prof. Peter Chadwick, who had considerable influence on the development of his subject over a period of more than 30 years and provided much support to a generation of researchers and colleagues.

Find out about our new initiative 'Science, Society and Policy.'

The new initiative is addressing major societal and policy questions from a science perspective. Our new initiative has been inspired, in part, by the COVID-19 and climate crises, as well as the journal’s publication of several manuscripts that may be described as falling under a broad umbrella of science, society and policy. Read more about it on the website HERE.

Learn about our transition to Open Access

Four of our journals will transition to open access. Open access is the idea that the fruits of research should be freely available to read and re-use in order to maximise the benefit and impact of that research (most of which is funded by the public purse). In a sense, The Royal Society has been in the open access game for centuries. As long ago as the eighteenth century, we were circulating Philosophical Transactions to institutions and sister societies all over the world at considerable cost. Thus we operated a kind of print open access long before the modern concept was born. Find out more about the Open Access options on the website HERE.
