Records were the quickest way to circulate immediate results of research, field work or other events and eventually became a formal printed series of reports, most made publicly available. These Records commenced in 1941 and continue to this day.
Reports were introduced in 1948 and were specifically intended to provide a broad audience with the preliminary results of investigations in a formal publication.
The purpose of the Bulletins was to present broad regional or thematic summaries of the agency's investigations, often aggregating results described in a number of earlier Records, Reports or other publications.
The BMR Journal of Australian Geology & Geophysics was started in March 1976. In 1993, it became the AGSO Journal of Australian Geology & Geophysics. After 24 years, 17 volumes and a change of policy, it was incorporated into the Australian Journal of Earth Sciences.
