SPN papers

SPN regularly holds study days throughout the year. The presentations and discussions from these study days form the basis of the papers you will find here.

SPN speakers contribute to our events on a volunteer basis and we are incredibly indebted to them for their contributions including these papers. We therefore ask people distributing the study day papers to credit SPN and / or the author as relevant.

If you would like to mass distribute a paper, or use it at a conference, please contact spn@scie.org.uk prior to use.

Our papers are available to download from the website, and we have copies of later publications in hard copy, please email to check availability.
