Initially, in the beginning of 1935, the Academy commissioned its journal, the Proceedings of the National Institute of Sciences of India for publishing articles from all branches of Science including Mathematics. As the number of papers accepted increased, it was difficult for them to be accommodated in a single volume, and hence the journal was bifurcated into two parts - Part A (Physical Sciences) and part B (Biological Sciences) from 1955. Later, as the name of the Academy was changed to Indian National Science Academy, the journal became Proceedings of the Indian National Science Academy in 1970 published in two parts. Six issues of each part were brought out in a calendar year. In 1997, a further change in the publication policy came forth and the Academy decided to shift orientation from January 1998 to publish review articles of contemporary scientific interest, evaluating advances and newer approaches in the field. The emphasis thus shifted from being vehicles of original research reports into ones of reviews, as well as of comprehensive summary reports on chosen topics. The size of the new version of Proceedings has been changed into Demi Quarto International A4 since January 1998. The Proceedings then concentrated in bringing out thematic issues on current scientific topics containing invited reviews both from India and abroad since 2001. However from the year 2006, the Academy brought out major changes in the Proceedings as the two parts have been merged into a single volume. Each issue of the Proceedings which is an inter-disciplinary journal covers areas under Physical, Biological, Applied Sciences and also Engineering. Four issues are brought out in the months of March, June, September and December each year. The Proceedings has been rejuvenated to contain review papers, original research articles, short communications, commentaries, lateral thinking and emerging techniques etc. thus covering a broad spectrum of reports, articles.

The interested authors are welcome to contribute to the Proceedings and submit their papers, which upon passing through the standard rigours of refereeing shall be published in the Journal.
