A new online, open access social work and social policy journal published by Social Work and Policy Studies, University of Sydney through the University of Sydney Library. More details are forthcoming. Please register to be informed when submissions are open or a new issue is published.
Social Work and Policy Studies: Social Justice, Practice and Theory aims to provide a platform for those advancing knowledge and debate on any aspect of social justice-informed social work, social policy, practice or theory.
With a goal of publishing twice yearly, the journal welcomes submissions that explore questions of: social injustice; inequity; systemic and/or individual oppression; the power dynamics of social relations such as race, class, gender, disability, sexuality, Indigeneity, age, region, political economy; questions engaging with intersectionality and multiple oppressions; and various forms of resistance, social change, social policy and social justice initiatives.
Swamphen: A Journal of Cultural Ecology encourages critically creative responses to the sentient habitats of the world. We publish scholarly articles, lyrical essays, creative works and reviews of relevant scholarship, amplifying work that attends to human encounters with other species. Our journal emerges from the air, lands and seas that formed the first peoples of our region and we attend to these communities’ narratives as a first principle. While the journal primarily offers literary insights into the unsettled territories many know as Australia and Aotearoa, we also look to other ecologies in formation during this time of critical environmental change. Swamphen is peer reviewed and published biennially, in response to ASLEC-ANZ conferences. We welcome proposals for special issues.
Swamphen: a Journal of Cultural Ecology was previously known as the Australasian Journal of Ecocriticism and Cultural Ecology. Our refreshed name refers to the Australasian swamphen (Porphyrio melanotus), known as the pūkeko in Māori language and the kwilom in Noongar language. Like the swamphen, our journal attends to life on the ground, in the skies and in waters. The name itself, swamp and hen, brings together the plants, earth, water and animals that are the focus of ASLEC-ANZ.

Organizations play a critical role in any economy, undertaking numerous activities from production, to solving problems and generating new ideas and innovations. The Organizational Economics Workshop, held at The University of Sydney and jointly organised by The University of Sydney and The Australian National University, examines a broad range of economic issues relating to organizations, including: incentive contracts with external and internal parties and managerial remuneration; the organization of production, the use of labour and wage structures; the design of hierarchies; the allocation of decision making protocols within organizations; and the optimal allocation of ownership and alternative ownership structures. The Workshop started in 2007. The Workshop is a place for the presentation of both theoretical and empirical research into organizations.
The Organizational Economics Proceedings is a refereed journal of papers presented at the Workshop. The journal aims to be a forum the quick dissemination of new insights into the internal workings of organizations. Consequently, the Organizational Economics Proceedings also welcomes submissions of original research into organizations from researchers throughout the year. The journal does not require authors to forgo their copyright, so articles published in the Organizational Economics Proceedings can also be submitted and published in other journals.
