'Agenda' is the policy journal of
the College of Business and Economics at The Australian National
University. It provides a much needed space for the research-based
appraisal of current economic, social, and legal policy.
In keeping with
its remit, Agenda aims to be accessible to non-specialists and
specialists alike. In sympathy with this aim, Agenda is available
universally on the web and at no charge. Agenda is also ECONLIT
listed, and included in the PROQUEST and EBSCO data
Agenda's 'Analysis' section provides an
outlet for fresh policy research using any theoretical or
econometric approach. Its 'Argument' section provides a platform
for the reasoned and scholarly advocacy of a particular policy
position. Its 'Retrospect' section accommodates interviews, the
history of policy, doctrine and professional life. Agenda also
publishes review articles as well as shorter reviews.

All issues from 1(1) to the latest are now
available electronically from ANU Press under the title Agenda: journal

Agenda welcomes submissions not only by
academics, but also by consultants and private scholars, and
government advisors. Neither the title nor the subtitle limits the
journal's scope to economic policy. We give space to articles on
the ideas and doctrines that inform policy debate, and on the
institutions and processes through which policies are formulated
Editorial queries and all papers should be
submitted by email to the Editor. All articles need to be
provided in Microsoft Word format of any version.
Unsolicited submissions to Agenda
(articles, notes and book reviews) are welcome, but authors are
advised to discuss their proposals with one of the editorial group
