The digitisation of earlier volumes (1962–1997) was made possible through funds generated for the Society by the International Congress of Entomology, Brisbane, 2004, with the help of Wiley-Blackwell staff.

The first five volumes were published as the Journal of the Entomological Society of Queensland and subsequent volumes up to Volume 36 were published as the Journal of the Australian Entomological Society. Volume 37 (1998) to Volume 52 (2013) were known as Australian Journal of Entomology. We acknowledge the Entomological Society of Queensland who provided permission for the early issues to be included in this package to ensure it was complete.
