Newsletter & Retort


WIAS Newsletter

The first edition of the WIAS Newsletter was produced in December 2000 and replaced the Retort Magazine, a much larger and more expensive publication. The Newsletter is produced quarterly and is available in paper format at meetings of the society or digitally as a .pdf document on the website. The publication contains a variety of articles and meeting reports which can be enjoyed at leisure. The back copies are now combined as a single .pdf file so you can search within it for a particular item or topic without having open each one individually. Apologies for the quality of the first few scans – if there is a member with good paper editions of  issues 1-6 please get in touch if you would be happy to lend them to WIAS for re-scanning!

NEW!  You can now read the Newsletter right here by simply clicking in the box below. Each page will turn with the click of a mouse, just as if you were reading the paper version, zoom in and out, jump from issue to issue, search for a subject or topic. Give it a try!


Retort Magazine

Retort was published by WIAS between Spring 1993 and Summer 2000. The magazine grew considerably as it evolved and as a consequence the scanned files of the larger issues are quite substantial in size.  Like the WIAS Newsletter, all editions of Retort are now in a single .pdf file for ease of searching.  Open and read on line and then save a copy on your own PC if you wish to.

New! You can now view and read ‘Retort’ as a magazine right here! The pages flick over in the same way as the newsletter above. Try it now!
