Alsterworthia International Special Issues

The subject matter of Special Issues is broadly similar to that of the journals, but articles are generally more extensive. Special Issues are also better suited to reprints of scientific papers, which are not-so-readily-available to the public. Some important articles published in parts in different journals are also published together as special issues for non-members.

Special issues may be ordered from the editor or from booksellers by title and ISBN number. Alsterworthia members receive a discount on special issues when ordering from Alsterworthia International only. Members' discounts are published each year in the November journal.
