Occasional Papers is the title of a series of short publications which address topics of current concern or other wide public interest and which have been written for the non-specialist reader. Occasional Papers may be based on and published soon after a seminar, conference or workshop held in the Royal Society of Edinburgh, but they may also be published if it is felt that, by doing so, the Society might make a contribution to public debate on a particular issue.
