The Survey of Numismatic Research Survey is published for the International Numismatic Congress and provides an authoritative commented bibliography on the numismatic research of the period between two Congresses. The first Survey was published for the Paris Congress in 1953, and the next one is due for the 2015 Congress in Messina/Taormina in Sicily. Walter Bloom is responsible for the Oceania sections, covering Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific, and has compiled a list of articles covering numismatics in this region for the period 2009 – 2013 in two sections, General and Medals.
