NJ: Drama Australia Journal is a highly respected publication which supports teachers, artists, and researchers who work in the intersecting fields of drama, education, theatre and applied theatre. While it is managed by Drama Australia, its scope and audience is international, attracting articles and readers from across the world.

Established in 1976, the journal has previously been published under various titles, including Nadie Journal. Between 2014 and 2021 NJ was published by Taylor and Francis, but from 2022 and commencing with Volume 46, NJ will be published by Drama Australia using the Scholastica open access online platform.

This change is in line with Drama Australia’s organisational goals which include equity and advocacy and means that all drama educators and practitioners, irrespective of geographic context or financial status, will now be able to engage with our content free of charge.

This will include access to almost 20 years of our back catalogue. Drama Australia hopes that this decision will open up new audiences and opportunities for a wide range of authors to contribute their work.
