Informit's drive for new content continues with more great new titles
Informit’s drive to acquire valuable content for users continues with the addition of three popular journals and six new reports in May.
Building on an already comprehensive collection of books, journals, scholarly research and reports, Informit continues to focus on providing customers access to a broad range of content and is actively working on improving users’ experience with its upgrade project, which involves redeveloping Informit’s technology platform.
Informit Director, Michael Tully, is working closely with his team to transform Informit’s capabilities to deliver new products and services to new and existing markets. He believes that building on Informit’s hard-to-find content offering and acquiring new content that meets our users needs will help keep Informit successful well into the future.
“We strive to offer our customers an extensive range of in-demand content and to position ourselves as the ultimate research portal for students, scholars, educators and professionals,” he said.
New content includes the Perth International Law Journal, published by the University of Western Australia International Law Society. This is part of Informit’s Humanities and Social Sciences Collection, which includes all volumes from its first publication in 2016.
The peer-reviewed, open access Journal features articles on a broad range of topics relevant to public international law, comparative law, international criminal law, international humanitarian law, human rights, counter-terrorism and security, law of the sea, aviation law, World Trade Organisation (WTO) law, legal philosophy and more. The 2012-2018 issues of the Australian Quarterly journal are also now available in full text as part of Informit’s AGIS Collection.
Several new reports have also been added to Informit during May, including The Australian Institute of Criminology (AIC) report series, which focus on public policy debate. These reports feature original research papers, conference proceedings and statistics. Also new to Informit are reports from the NSW Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research (BOCSAR) which focus on crime and criminal justice in NSW.
And the sought-after Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) 2017-18 Communications Report is now available, which is part of Informit’s Business Collection. ACMA has published annual reports since 2005-06 and provide a comprehensive survey of the Australian communications landscape.
