September 2018 Bulletin cover showing the hoverfly Eristalis nemorum.
The Bulletin of the Amateur Entomologists' Society is the Society's high-quality, house journal. Published four times a year, the journal contains articles written by members on all aspects of entomology.
The Society is keen to maintain high standards for the Bulletin and welcomes submissions from all members. If you wish to discuss a potential topic for an article, please contact us.
We are unable to send out free/example copies of the Bulletin. The AES is a registered charity and the cost of sending out free copies to non-members is prohibitively expensive. Please consider supporting our society by becoming a member. That way you'll get the Bulletin and all the other benefits of membership.
