The IAS Journal

Welcome to the homepage of the Journal of the Institute of Anatomical Sciences

The IAS Journal

This is a unique journal specialising in the communication of excellence in technical practices. Papers published in this journal primarily concern innovative techniques in anatomical sciences, however we are also willing to accept original anatomical research and papers written by undergraduate students.

The journal is free to download for IAS members

If you have any questions please contact the editors Kirsty Lesniak  or Alistair Bond

Writing for the Journal

We understand that experience of academic writing may be daunting if you have no experience in this. However please don’t let that dissuade you from writing for the Journal. A template that you can use that will guide your writing along with some information can be downloaded below.

The IAS is also planning workshops for academic writing. Please email Kirsty Lesniak for information on the next workshop.

In order to provide the IAS membership with a valuable set of technical reports, we have designed this easy-to-use form. Fill in the boxes (using the guidelines provided) and we will do the paper formatting for you.
