Australian Studies

First appearing in 1988, Australian Studies (ISSN 2042-5120), the journal of BASA, covers a wide range of disciplines (including geography, history, law, political science, economics, literature, the media, sociology, science etc). Over the first decade of its life, the journal has established itself internationally as a respected context for the publication of scholarship and comment on many aspects of the Australian scene. The journal's particular aim is to foster innovative critical approaches, and to encourage connections between traditionally discrete areas of research. Australian Studies appears twice-yearly, publishing both themed and general issues. Themed issues are based on the interests of particular editors, or generated by the proceedings of BASA conferences. Scholarly contributions to general issues are welcomed. Contributions to themed issues are commissioned. Australian Studies is a fully-refereed journal, enjoying the support of a distinguished international body of scholars.
