The Skeptic is published four times per year by the Australian Skeptics. Since the first issue was published in 1981, the Skeptic has printed articles on a vast variety of skeptical subjects ranging from alien abduction to zombies.
In January 1981 a new phenomenon burst upon the publishing scene. It was manifested in a four page, tabloid format newspaper, titled the Skeptic. From January 1982, the Skeptic became a quarterly magazine and has remained so ever since, with the number of pages gradually increasing to over 60 pages.
