Then, eleven years after it was founded, the SNSN published the content of its debates in order to "provide a quick way of publicising observations which are likely to interest the scientifically minded general public."

Today, the Bulletin is a scientific journal in ist own right. Publishing the results of research undertaken by SNSN members alongside scientific reports, it now offers much more than just debates in summary form. Neither has it forgotten ist non-specialist audience, with the first two pages of each issue devoted to an article providing general information. The Bulletin is published once a year in one or, more rarely, two volumes.

The SNSN also works to further the scientific study of the Canton of Neuchâtel. For this reason, the editors of the Bulletin seek out articles on the Neuchâtel region and promote them for publication.

The Société neuchâteloise des sciences naturelles (Neuchâtel Society of Natural Sciences, or SNSN) aims to inform as broad a public as possible about the latest scientific findings in different research disciplines. It does this by organising an annual cycle of conferences complemented by visits to laboratories, museums, botanical gardens, companies, archaeological digs and areas of natural beauty.

The SNSN works together with the following institutions: the University of Neuchâtel, to which the majority of its committee members belong; the Neuchâtel Museum of Natural History, which undertakes some of the administration work; and the Public and University Library and the Swiss Academy of Sciences, which are responsible for distributing and exchanging copies of the Bulletins.

The Société neuchâteloise des sciences naturelles was founded in 1832 in Neuchâtel through the efforts of a group of scientists that included Louis Agassiz, Henri de Joannis and Henri Ladame, three names that would reappear in 1840 as professors at the first Académie, later to become the university. The SNSN started life as a narrow scientific circle in which experts debated the issues of the day in the fields of medicine, zoology, botany, geology, mathematics, engineering and horology.
