New ANU Reporter launched

With double the number of stories, new voices and a sleek digital format that brings stories to life, ANU Vice-Chancellor Professor Ian Young AO has hailed the new ANU Reporter as a real match for  some of the best publications in country.

ANU Reporter has been the University's flagship magazine for 44 years and with a fresh look and feel has joined the digital world with a free iPad and Android tablet app.

The latest edition brings significant changes to the magazine, moving it from a corporate publication to a window into ANU life, told in the voices of the ANU community.

Professor Young launched the new look magazine this week in front of more than 120 ANU staff, students and alumni who celebrated a new era of ANU Reporter.

"It’s an important record of our best and most exciting research, our big breakthrough moments, our shared history, and our expert views on national and global issues," said Professor Young.

"It records a history of ANU and provides us with an important chronicle – a moment in time – telling us about ourselves and reminding us about what mattered most."

The magazine now has four distinct sections: in the world, in their words, features and one last word.

In the world holds the opinions of some of Australia’s sharpest minds on topics of national and international importance. In this edition it includes the changing balance of power in the Gulf, the ANZAC legend and the state of Australian politics.

In their words includes the voices of the ANU community: alumni, students, staff, members of the emeritus faculty and friends. Read about ANU alumnus Thérèse Rein, gender equality in science, a new brand of feminism and journeying through Tajikistan.

In the latest edition's features section:

And in one last word the latest "Life sentences" looks at the stories behind the shrapnel in your pockets and "Word watch" examines immigration policy nomenclature.
