Science, Politics, Society - AQ
Established in 1929, AQ - Australian Quarterly is Australia's longest-running current affairs magazine and Australia's only magazine with a focus on Science Policy. It contains articles on political, economic, social and scientific issues that are relevant to Australian public affairs.
AQ is published four times per year and is directed towards the informed general public, from university professors to high school students, policy makers to the interested public. Bridging the gap between academic journal and glossy mag, AQ is unique in the Australian publishing landscape for offering in-depth, evidence-based articles that are both accessible to everyone while maintaining the highest levels of intellectual rigour.
