Policy Online is a research database and alert service providing free access to full text research reports and papers, statistics and other resources essential for public policy development and implementation in Australia and New Zealand.
Policy Online monitors over 500 sources each week including academic research centres and institutes, government departments, think tanks, NGOs and other media and information networks, in order to select and catalogue high quality open access research on public interest issues in Australia. Currently we have over 16,000 research records linking to full text resources.
The site specialises in reports and articles on public interest issues but also includes peer-reviewed journal articles and ebooks from Australia and internationally.
As well as research, Policy Online offers commentary articles, video, audio and web resources, topic guides, books, calls for papers and a range of paid listings for events, jobs and courses.
