About archived publications

The academy's publications have always evolved with changing times and needs of its Fellows. The publications like Dialogue and Occasional papers dealt with issues and topics that were pertinent and that garner interest and debate to advance the ideas of the academy's Fellows. These publications published until 2012 can be found in this section of archived publications.

Academy proceedings
ASSA's Academy Proceedings published lectures, discussion papers, and other proceedings. The publications in this series arose from research or events which the Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia had organised, or was associated with. Papers, transcripts and other material which appear in Academy Proceedings (ISSN: 1838-6970) are not peer reviewed, and are published periodically. They were printed in hard copy, and available for free download. Particular types of Academy Proceedings can be identified by the following suffixes: (CL) for Cunningham Lectures; (DP) for policy discussion papers. Older Cunningham Lectures may be found on the Cunningham Lectures page.
Dialogue
Dialogue, the Academy's journal, was published two or three times a year from 1998 to 2012. It was originally distributed in a printed version and more recently in electronic format as well.
Occasional papers
ASSA's Occasional Papers series published academic papers from social sciences disciplines which addressed public policy and other issues. ASSA Occasional Papers, including Occasional Papers (Policy Papers) and Occasional Papers (Census Series), were peer reviewed, and were aimed at a broad audience, including interested but non-academic readers. ASSA Occasional Papers (ISSN: 1323-7136) are printed in hard copy, and available for free download. Some older issues in the Occasional Papers series published non-peer reviewed Academy proceedings, and in particular lectures. These issues of the Occasional Papers series are designated accordingly, and include Occasional Papers (Cunningham Lectures), and Occasional Papers (Policy Discussion Papers). From late 2010, all non-peer reviewed ASSA publications can be found in Academy Proceedings.
