Abstract 

Trends of subject matter and statistics of papers published in Molluscan Research during 19942011 were analysed using data from Zoological Record. The number of papers increased after the frequency of publication was increased to three times per year in 2002. In addition to keeping a strong taxonomic focus with about a third of the papers describing at least one new spe-cies in the last ten years, it has successfully evolved from a primarily Australasian journal to a truly international journal with an Asia-Pacific focus.
