AJAL promotes critical thinking and research in the field of adult learning as well as the theory, research and practice of adult and community education. It has been published for over fifty years and covers a wide range of topics of interest to those in adult education.
For the past five years the number of female contributors to the Journal has been approximately double that of men. And Australian contributors have been about twice as many as international contributors. The contributions in this issue’s refereed section reflect that. Except that, all the authors in this issue are women. Two of the papers are directly concerned with Australian education, one is focused on South Africa, and the other two papers are about Australian educators’ collaboration with colleagues in the Asia Pacific region.
