Clark Center Director Joins Editorial Board of the Journal of Australian Studies

Dr. Rhonda Evans has joined the Editorial Board of the Journal of Australian Studies (JAS), the premier journal of the International Australian Studies Association (InASA). A fully refereed international quarterly, JAS publishes scholarly articles and reviews on Australian culture, society, politics, history, and literature. The Journal was established in 1977 and is now published by Taylor & Francis. For 2017, its two-year Impact Factor was 0.311, well above the average in area studies and its five-year Impact Factor rose to 0.430. JAS is ranked in Scimago as having Q1s in Literature and History. Dr. Maggie Nolan and Julie Kimber, JAS co-editors, are particularly interested in multi and interdisciplinary work.

InASA was formed in 1995. It builds on the foundational work of the former Australian Studies Association and recognizes that Australian Studies is now an international enterprise with Australian studies centers and professional associations throughout Asia, Europe, and North America. Thus, it is not surprising that 20 percent of the articles downloaded from the JAS are downloaded from outside of Australia. InASA strives to promote links between the Australian and international Australian studies communities and to lobby Federal and State governments to support the development of Australian studies internationally. InASA welcomes individuals, institutions, Australian studies centers and Associations as members.
