Publications Overview

ALARA Publicationsalarj_cover

ALARA currently has three publications: 

  • a journal,
  • a monograph series and 
  • a members' newsletter.

These publications are managed by a Publications Working Group. If you are an ALARA member with an interest in working on publications, please get in touch with the Publications Coordinator by email: editor [at]


We facilitate networking amongst members and others in projects, research, teaching or learning about action learning, action research and process management and related approaches. ALARA can support a branch or network to "start up" or events and activities with seed funds (repayable once up and running). Members are encouraged to work as network hubs generating interaction among members with a particular interest or in a specific geographical area.

The first local network was Brisbane ALARA in Queensland, and this remains a highly active powerhouse. It has generated numerous activities and fund-raisers, and is associated also with Bob Dick's AR-listservice and ARwebsite, and also Shankar Sankaran's Southern Cross AR Institute. Other networks are in Victoria, Singapore and South Africa. They may or may not be called ALARA branches, as our focus is on supporting or linking with authentically local networks or organisations, either ones already-existing, or those newly emerging. We are explicitly not empire-building colonisers!
