This is the archive of the Proceedings of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, published from 1844 to 1940.
Note on the publications of the RSE
The Transactions of the Royal Society of Edinburgh was first published in 1788, and the Proceedings of the Royal Society of Edinburgh was first published in 1844. In 1940 the Proceedings was split into two journals: Section A for Mathematical and Physical Sciences (devoted solely to Mathematics since 1974) and Section B for Biology, which ceased publication in 1996. From 1980 the Transactions has been dedicated to Earth and Environmental Sciences. We are in the process of digitising the deep archive of all the RSE publications, and will host that content as follows:
All Transactions content, dating back to 1788, will be accessed from the site of the current Earth and Environmental Science Transactions of the Royal Society of Edinburgh
. Volumes of the Proceedings published before 1940 will be hosted as the Proceedings of the Royal Society of Edinburgh
Volumes of the Proceedings published since 1940 will be hosted on the respective sites dedicated to the Proceedings of the Royal Society of Edinburgh Section A: Mathematics, and Proceedings of the Royal Society of Edinburgh Section B: Biology
