Our latest edition is Stories of Australian Science 2012 - you can read it online here.
Stories has grown from our first collection, written in 2007 when journalists met in Melbourne for the 5th World Conference of Science Journalists. Since 2010, we’ve published an annual magazine featuring highlights of Australian Science. They are distributed to contributing agencies and interested Australian government departments and delegations worldwide.
We publish occasional special editions: Stories of Australian Astronomy was an astronomy-themed storybook produced in conjunction with the International Year of Astronomy and the Australian Department of Innovation Industry, Science and Research (DIISR).
And we help Australia’s Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research to highlight Australia’s collaboration with other countries:
