The Australian Universities' Review (AUR, formerly Vestes) is Australia's oldest and most widely read refereed journal dedicated exclusively to higher education issues.
AUR is published by the National Tertiary Education Union (NTEU) to encourage debate and discussion about issues in higher education and its contribution to Australian public life, with an emphasis on those matters of concern to NTEU members.
AUR has been in continuous publication since 1958 and has a current distribution of about 8,000 copies per issue in hard copy, and 1,000 in soft copy (online e-mag).
AUR is published twice a year, in February and September, and is on the ERA Ranked Journal List.
The primary objective of AUR is to encourage debate and discussion about issues in higher education and its contribution to Australian public life.
AUR publishes both articles and other contributions, including short commentary and satire. All articles are subject to double blind peer review and assessed by independent referees before publication. Priority is given to contributions which are substantial, lively and original and have a broad appeal. Responses to previously published contributions are also encouraged.
