Molluscan Research is an international journal for the publication of all aspects of molluscan research, including review articles, in all branches of the study of Mollusca (malacology), including biology, systematics, morphology, physiology, ecology, conservation, biogeography, genetics and biography.

The journal has a world-wide scope with emphasis on studies relating to Australasia, the Indo-west Pacific and South East Asia. Monographic studies of up to about 60 printed pages can also be considered for publication, although we recommend that large monographs be submitted to Zootaxa.

The journal has been published  since 1957 (as the Journal of the Malacological Society of Australia until 1993). It was published by CSIRO Publishing from 2001-2004 and those issues can be accessed on the CSIRO Publishing website.

From 2013 (volume 33), Molluscan Research has been published by Taylor & Franciswho also hosts contents of older volumes (1–21).
