Arachnology is the foremost British academic publication on all aspects of Arachnology (excluding Acarology), including discussions of arachnid biology and ecology, descriptions of new species, and information on recent discoveries in arachnology.

Arachnology is edited by Professor Paul Selden of the Paleontological Institute, University of Kansas (former President of the British Arachnological Society) assisted by numerous specialist reviewers.

The Bulletin of the British Arachnological Society was first published in 1969, and was edited for 37 years by Dr Peter Merrett. From 2013, the Bulletin has been renamed Arachnology in order to reflect the international nature of its contents. Three issues are published each year, in Spring, Summer, and Autumn, and three years (nine issues) constitute a Volume. All articles in the Bulletin of the British Arachnological Society (1969–2012) are available for download in pdf format for free. Articles in Arachnology are available for download in pdf format for members only. These electronic reprints are for personal use only, and may not be used for commercial purposes.

Some statistics for 2015:

  • Manuscripts submitted 31, minor revision 11, major revision 8, rejected 12, acceptance rate 60%
  • Average time from submission to decision: 14.35 days (n = 31) (thank you reviewers!)
