Publication: Tuhinga: Records of the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa
Tuhinga: Records of the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa is the successor to the Museum of New Zealand Records, the National Museum of New Zealand Records, and the Dominion Museum Records in Ethnology. It is peer reviewed, published annually in June, and collects together papers by Te Papa's curators, collection managers, and research associates on a range of topics, from archaeology to zoology.
Te Papa's publishing has its origins in the nineteenth century. Since the 1860s, the scientists of its predecessor institutions, the Colonial Museum, the Dominion Museum and subsequently the National Museum of New Zealand, published papers on a range of topics, particularly in the natural sciences and ethnology. Tuhinga is published by Te Papa Press and online through Collections Online. This enables the rich content of each article to be linked to multiple objects, specimens, people and stories connected to the museum and its collections.
