‘Informed Sources: Latest Educational Research for Australian Schools’ provides easy and accessible articles on relevant, recently published research in education.

These articles are ideal for educators or people working in policy who wish to save time and keep abreast of new developments. Individual subscriptions are normally $85 a year. However, thanks to the SA Department for Education’s sponsorship of MCERA, Informed Sources is now free to Department employees.

The articles are subject to copyright. For employees of the Department for Education receiving a free subscription, the articles are licensed for individual use only. School subscriptions allow schools to use the articles for professional development of their leadership teams and staff, to inform discussions with parent representative bodies, and as content for school newsletters, blogs, and social media. School subscriptions are available here.

Our articles are based on recently published research; due to our work assisting education researchers communicate their findings to the media, we are uniquely positioned to keep abreast of their latest studies, and to convey their insights with clarity, accuracy, and concision. We are advised by an Education Research Advisory Panel, consisting of eminent education researchers from universities across Australia.
