Current Newsletter

Newsletter Number 86 – February 2021


Interested in history of the NZSA? Our online newsletter archive has been extended to include newsletters published prior to 1998.

Available now is the Association’s first newsletter, published in March 1984.  Thanks to Richard Penny for sourcing and scanning the old newsletters!

Note: Newsletters from 1998 appear without images. Blank pages in some back issues are for advertisements for Springer Verlag. Some advertisements are not reproduced well in the Newsletter and so separate versions are also given.
