'Australasian Science gives a broad coverage of scientific endeavour
in Australasia and provides a forum where scientists, students
and those with a curiosity and interest in science
can communicate with a wide audience."
For many years Bright Sparcs has been providing 'Eye on the Past' articles for the University of Southern Queensland journal, Australasian Science. These are short articles about Australian scientists and are approximately 500-600 words long. These articles are reproduced here with the permission of Australasian Science.
As of January 1998, Australasian Science and SEARCH will merge. The combined publication will be produced ten times a year (http://www.ozemail.com.au/search/).
