Hoepner, Jacqui – Australian Universities' Review, 2019
What do attacks on 'unpalatable' research reveal about academic freedom? When academic work is curtailed, this cherished yet misunderstood concept is undermined.

Cuthill, Michael; O'Shea, Éidín; Wilson, Bruce; Viljoen, Pierre – Australian Universities' Review, 2014

McAlpine, Lynn – Australian Universities' Review, 2012
Despite much research into doctoral education over the past two decades, theorising the field remains challenging. Recently, identity has been taken up as a conceptualising frame.

Boyle, Gregory J.; Furedy, John J.; Neumann, David L.; Westbury, H. Rae; Reiestad, Magnus – Australian Universities' Review, 2010
The wording of university academic job advertisements can reflect a commitment to equity (affirmative action) as opposed to academic merit in hiring decisions. The method of judgemental content analysis was applied by having three judges rate 810 Australian tenure-stream advertisements on seven-point magnitude scales of equity and merit. The…

Tancred-Sheriff, Peta – Australian Universities' Review, 1988
It is proposed that Canadian universities are "alien" to women because they are dominated by men, have a large proportion of faculty who are not Canadian citizens, and are underutilizing the talents of the female half of the nation's population. Comparisons are made between the Canadian and Australian situations. (MSE)
