Aims and scope

Australian Aboriginal Studies (AAS) is an inter-disciplinary peer-reviewed journal promoting high-quality research in Australian Indigenous studies, with a focus on the humanities and social sciences. It is published for a wide audience in both print and digital form, and visual content is encouraged.

AAS acts as a forum for dialogue about the key themes in the disciplines involved with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander research. It is networked to multiple universities and research centres and includes practical research with policy relevance.

Each issue contains several scholarly articles, accompanied by research reports, book reviews and news and information. All major articles are peer-reviewed and copy-edited for publication. Australian Aboriginal Studies is abstracted in the following databases: AIATSIS Indigenous Studies Bibliography, APAFT (including health and education subsets), Informit Indigenous collection, EBSCO history reference section and ProQuest.

Australian Aboriginal Studies is also comprehensively indexed with full text in the Informit Indigenous Collection, EBSCO History Reference Centre and ProQuest.


Individuals, organisations and students can subscribe to AAS, with standing orders available for organisations.
