SGR Newsletters

The influential SGR Newsletter  was published regularly between 1992 and 2018. Averaging 24 pages, it contained feature articles, as well as news of SGR activities, and reviews of books and conferences. Feature articles were written by authors with expertise in the relevant field, and include detailed references. It has now been replaced by the Responsible Science Journal.

Pdf copies of previous newsletters dating back to 2001 are available to download from this section, with a selection of the best articles available under issues. The final newsletter published by Architects and Engineers for Social Responsibility (AESR) in 2005 is also available to download here.
