Notes for philatelic researchers



A study of research in philately will show us that the last 50 years has seen an explosion of publication. Such scholarship has been much aided by the formation of specialist philatelic societies and the bringing together of those interested in the same or similar subjects by means of meetings, journals, web sites and electronic mail. While these developments in communication have been revolutionary, the underlining discipline of research techniques has not changed. Instances of poor research continue and with the aim of improving technique I have put together the notes that follow.
