Discussion paper meetings

Some RSS Journal articles ('papers for reading') are presented and discussed before publication at a discussion meeting. The discussion and authors' replies are then published in the relevant Journal series. About half of the meetings are organised by the Society's Research Section and the events are often preceded by an informal session on the issues raised by the papers.

Discussion Meetings are usually held in the early evening at the Society's premises in Errol Street, London. More recently, the meetings have been held online.

Preprints of journal papers are available to download before discussion meetings. Other papers, such as presidential addresses, are also available to download. All preprints available here are provisional and subject to later amendment by the authors.

See our guidelines for papers for discussion and how to submit a paper.

Contact Judith Shorten if you would like to make a written contribution to a discussion meeting or join our mailing list for an early invitation to future meetings.
