Aims and Scope

TSR is explicitly cross-disciplinary, with both theoretical and empirical papers invited from a range of disciplines and fields of practice in the third sector. Critiques of existing theory or practice are invited. Contributions are encouraged from both practitioners and academics on third sector issues of interest to those in Australia, New Zealand and our Pacific neighbours.

Coverage of the journal includes characteristics of the third sector or any aspect of its management, particularly:

  • governance,
  • human-resources management,
  • the labour market,
  • financial management,
  • strategic management and managing change,
  • community development,
  • fundraising,
  • user rights,
  • relations with government,
  • legal issues,
  • historical development, etc.

There is a special ‘From the Field’ section and occasional book reviews.
