New Community Journal

New Community is Australia’s only Journal devoted to Community Development.

We attempt to address issues of importance to local communities and to the people who live in them and invite contributions to any of the four major sections around which the journal is built.

There is a ‘refereed’ section, which accepts ‘academic’ articles of any content related to Community Development and which is peer-reviewed; there is also a ‘thematic section’, which invites contributions to a theme deemed important for the practice of community development or which discusses important contextual issues to that practice.  We also include a section for ‘networking’, where local, regional, state or interest-specific networks are invited to submit news items or other materials. There is a section with news, information, reviews, readers’ feedback and contributions to discussion.

We hope to contribute to the ongoing debates and mutual learning of all those interested in the theory and practice of Community Work in Australia and further afield.
