  Back Focus is the Society magazine, which is sent to members of the Society by mail. Articles are mostly by members with specialist interests, and reflect exceptional levels of research. Permission to reprint articles in like publications is commonly given on application to the APCS Secretary.

The following items are the APCS Journals from the beginning in 1976 when they were known as Newsletters through a change in name to "Back Focus" in mid-1992 to the present. Up to 1983 they were numbered sequentially from 1 to 22, then after a review years were generally given volume numbers with Volume 2 starting in 1985 - the idea that the first 22 were given the retrospective "Volume 1". That numbering changed in December 1997 when a back count of earlier numbers was done and a new sequential number of "27" was adopted, counting from the first Back Focus in mid 1992 - a numbering sequence that remains today.
