♦ Eligibility
In general, we publish work by Honours graduates, Masters (Research) graduates and PhD candidates or recent graduates of the same. Our remit is to support emerging researchers in Australia and New Zealand, so if you’re either in or from Australia or New Zealand then you’re probably eligible.
