With over 40,000 pages and 1,800 contributing authors, the Memoirs have published over 2,100 peer-reviewed articles and Notes, including the descriptions of approximately 5,500 new species, and has documented the evidence of adaptation and resilience of Queensland's natural and cultural communities in the face of rapid environmental and technological changes.

Both series are recognised as Excellence for Research in Australia (ERA) Journals that are scholarly, peer-reviewed by experts in their field and registered with ISSNs.
