About the Publications
The Department of Scientific Publications is responsible for the release of three serials published by the American Museum of Natural History: Bulletin of the American Museum of Natural History (est. 1881), Anthropological Papers of the American Museum of Natural History (est. 1908), and American Museum Novitates (est. 1921). Each of these journals is published on an irregular schedule.
A primary goal of the AMNH scientific publications is to report the research of the scientific staff of the museum. Printed versions of recent publications are available for purchase and all issues of the three series may be downloaded for free.
