The Australasian Journal of Combinatorics

The website for the Australasian Journal of Combinatorics is, which has been recently reworked.

The Journal is a 'diamond open access' journal: online and free for readers and authors. There are three volumes per year, closing respectively in February, June and October, matching the time of publication of the old paper volumes. Volumes are currently being uploaded in three parts. Part 1 of Volume 72 has been uploaded, and Part 2 will appear online shortly.

The contents of all volumes, 1 to 72(1), are listed at the above web page. Part 3 of Volume 71 is a special issue in honour of Anne Penfold Street.

Visit and sign up to subscribe to email notices whenever new papers are published.

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

The Journal is now indexed by Scopus from Volume 13 (1996) onwards, and by Thomson Reuters "Emerging Sources Citation Index" from 2015 on.

ISSN: 2202-3518 (online only, after 2013); 1034-4942 (paper, before 2014).
