Privacy Law and Policy Reporter
PLPR moves on
The continuing relatively low level of professional and business interest in privacy issues in Australia means that PLPR is not going to continue as a commercial publication. We wish to thank CCH Australia for its support and involvement in the publication of Volume 11 but we have mutually decided that is not a viable path ahead.
The future for PLPR will be different. We expect to announce in the next couple of months a new model of privacy publication which will carry the name Privacy Law & Policy Reporter forward, with the involvement of many of the people who have been responsible for its success in the past, as a free access and open content publication. Watch this space.
For the moment we should conclude by saying ‘thank-you’. Our original publishers, Oliver Freeman and Prospect Publishing for volumes 1-7 and Butterworths (LexisNexis) for volumes 8-10 provided support and professionalism that enhanced our content. Our Editorial Board members, many of whom have been ‘on board’ since the earliest issues, have provided much of our most valuable content, and we trust they will be with us in future. Jill Matthews indexed Volumes 1-10 and provided support through thick and thin. And finally both our contributors and our readers have kept us going with their continuing positive comments about the value of PLPR both as a venue in which to publish and a publication to read. We thank you all.
