Until Summer 2009, the Society published a twice yearly newsletter, called "Headlines". At the October 2009 Steering Committee meeting, it was decided that a different approach was needed to communicate most effectively with its members, reflecting ever-changing advances in multimedia. In early 2010, the weekly electronic bulletin of the RCN Research & Innovation Team has become the official newsletter for both the RCN Research Society and the Research & Innovation Team.
