The Systematics Association published its first special volume in 1940. The New Systematics was a classic work edited by the then-president of the association, Sir Julian Huxley. Since then, more than 80 volumes have been published, often in rapidly expanding areas of science where a modern synthesis is required. A full list of publications is available here.

The Association encourages researchers to organize symposia that result in multi-authored volumes. In 1997, the association organised the first of its international Biennial Conferences. This and subsequent conferences, which are designed to provide for systematists of all kinds, included themed symposia that resulted in further publications. The association also publishes volumes that are not specifically linked to meetings, and encourages new publications in a broad range of systematics topics, and including textbooks.
