Auckland Museum research is published within a wide variety of specialist areas in the form of peer-reviewed articles, blog or topic pages, technical reports, and creative works. Staff also contribute to and edit the Museum's own publications: Records of the Auckland Museum and the monograph series, Bulletins of the Auckland Museum. These scholarly peer-reviewed serials are an important part of the Museum's statutory role to advance and promote cultural and scientific scholarship and research.
