Research Paper Series

rb-picResearch Briefs

ISSN 2206-3862

Our Research Briefs are a series of peer reviewed short papers reporting readily digestible summaries of research results on topical issues for the Northern Territory and beyond. Topics include demography and growth planning, and workforce development and migration, with others being progressively added.

 

ev-picEvaluative Voices

ISSN 2206-379X

Evaluative Voices is a peer-reviewed publication of short papers and longer pieces on aspects of theory and praxis, with a number of less traditional formats. Themes reflect the Northern Institute’s context and priorities, with a special focus on realist evaluation, evaluative thinking, strategic and policy evaluation, Indigenous evaluation methodologies, and evaluation in northern Australia and its regional neighbours. Formats that present the ‘voice’ of evaluators and evaluands are a feature, including some less likely to be found in other evaluation journals.

 

Peer Review Process

A peer review by a senior researcher other than the author(s), review and edit by the Research Coordinator at NI, and then a peer review by a senior researcher at NI/CDU or by a member of the International Panel (The International Panel is made up of decorated and respected researchers, commentators and policy makers engaged with the Northern Institute researchers and experts in their respected fields).

For any questions or comments on the papers, please contact the relevant person listed with each paper.
