Australian Studies: latest issue

The journal 'Australian Studies', is available online and free to access at the following address:

First appearing in 1988, 'Australian Studies' covers a wide range of disciplines (including geography, history, law, political science, economics, literature, the media, sociology, science etc). The journal has established itself internationally as a respected context for the publication of scholarship and comment on many aspects of the Australian scene, and is DEST recognised in Australia.

The journal's particular aim is to foster innovative critical approaches, and to encourage connections between traditionally discrete areas of research. Scholarly contributions to general issues are always welcomed, while contributions to themed issues are also commissioned. 'Australian Studies' is a fully-refereed journal, enjoying the support of a distinguished international body of scholars.

Various back issues are now also available online, together with a very handy index. For details, see:
