The Australasian Journal of Combinatorics

The website for the Australasian Journal of Combinatorics is

The Journal is published three times per year: in February, June and October. From the end of 2013, ALL volumes will be available free online at the journal's website, and paper volumes will cease; the journal will be "diamond open access" with no costs to either authors or readers.

Visit and sign up to subscribe to email notices whenever new papers are published. This will happen about nine times per year, with each volume uploaded in three batches. We expect the first batch in Volume 58 (February 2014) to appear online later this year. If you prefer RSS feeds, a facility enabling this will appear on the website in November.

The contents of all volumes, 1 to 57, are listed at the above web page. We also now have free public access to the full papers in Volumes 1 to 51 inclusive. Currently all but the last two years are available for free, and at the end of 2013 ALL volumes will be freely available.

Submissions to the Australasian Journal of Combinatorics may be sent to Only pdf files are required at submission stage.

ISSN: 2202-3518 (online, from end 2013); 1034-4942 (paper, to end 2013).
