Special Papers

We publish monographs or collections of essays separately from time to time. However, it is our present policy to publish as much as possible in Transactions, rather than in the Special Papers series. Those Special Papers that are still in print (see below) may be purchased directly from Oxbow Books.

Special Paper 17 is now available for purchase - see the post on the Latest News page to find out more and to download an order form.

Abstracts and volumes of some Special Papers are available on-line. Follow the links below to see abstracts and download PDFs.
