The New Look AQ: Australian Quarterly
Australia’s Only Magazine Focusing on Science Policy
Science underpins everything we do; how we interact with each other and the world, our health and longevity, our work and our play. What we take for granted would have been impossible a generation ago; and we have science to thank. But in a competitive world increasingly driven by innovation and knowledge, is Australia’s science landscape in the best shape it can be?
AQ: Australian Quarterly is Australia’s only journal with a focus on science policy, interrogating the social, political and scientific ramification of the research that will effect Australia’s future.
A Look Inside the Current Edition
Revolution in the Wings: Recent developments in Open Access Research
Science research advances because scientists, social scientists, researchers and scholars generally share their work, right? Standing on the shoulders of giants and all that? Well actually no. For about 200 years, the research literature has been largely restricted behind exclusionary pay-barriers, hindering everybody’s access to the scientific advances that will be the puzzle pieces in our future innovations. Here Emeritus Professor Arthur Sale dissects some of the most recent global developments in Open Access research. Like it or not, a change is coming.
Putting our money where our mouth is: Arthur Sale’s article on International Open Access is now…Open Access. Read the whole article for free at: http://eprints.utas.edu.au/17251/

Australian Democracy in the War on Terror
Over a decade has passed since the events of September 11, 2001. We all remember the frenzied period in its wake, the birth of The War on Terror, the rising fear and closed-border mentality following the Tampa issue. We now have the gift of hindsight, to look back at that turbulent time in Australian politics. Were we party to the politics of fear? Did we handle it well or ill? And were our parliamentarians really equipped to handle a crisis that changed the fabric of our democracy?
Cancer in General Practice: Accompanying Patients along the Journey
With Australia’s ever increasing cancer survival rates it is inevitable that cancer will make its mark on the careers of general practitioners, annually encountering around four new patients with diagnoses of potentially fatal cancers and having roughly sixteen patients diagnosed with cancer under their care at any one time. A GP’s multidimensional involvement in their patients’ health places them in a unique position to make significant contributions to patients’ wellbeing throughout the cancer care journey.
Australia’s Regulatory Panopticon
In the 21st century the dominance of late free-market capitalism constructs its subjects not as citizens, but as consumers and investors. Australia began as a penal colony and still our corporate history smacks of a winner take all mentality. Yet there is a blind spot in the national imagination about regulating business despite the fact that behind daily two-party politics there’s a convoluted and complicated machinery of regulation does not always work to protect us.
Fresh Face – Bright new Future
Combining the same in depth analysis with new regular sections, AQ continues to discuss, dissect and inspire the big issues facing Australia today. Over the course of AQ’s 84 year history the magazine has had many faces, now is the time for a bold new revamp that will set an exciting new course for the magazine into the future of modern Australia.
