Journal History

The Journal of Indonesia-Australia Study a.k.a Jurnal Studi Indonesia-Australia was firstly published in 2018 under Division of Journal of the Indonesian Students Association committee 2018 - 2019 (PPIA Kabinet Sinergi).

It was sparked by a short but productive arvo discussion at the Pannizi coffee shop, University of Wollongong, by two PhD candidate, on how we, the Indonesian scholars who study in Australia, can contribute directly to both their homeland and the Indonesia-Australia relationship.

We conclude that we should make a publication place, a journal, which will place a strong emphasis on cross-disciplinary topics includes policy issues (i.e. politics, maritime policy, bilateral relationship), cultural (i.e. languages, arts, ethnics, history), science, and education.

From coffee to reality, the journal then born.
