The Proceedings of the Indiana Academy of Science is the official publication of the Indiana Academy of Science. Issues go back to our 1885 founding. Prior to 1990 (Vol. 99), the journal was an annual publication, with many of the volumes hard bound. Since 1990 it has been published semiannually, with all issues being paper bound. Most past issues are still available for purchase (here). For additional information, contact our librarian, Jocelyn Lewis.
Quick turn-around time between submission of articles and their publication is a policy of the Proceedings. Most papers are published within six months of the date of acceptance. Many are published within six months of initial submission. All papers are reviewed by two expert peer reviewers.
