With increasing pressure on legal academics to demonstrate the high quality of their research by publishing in leading Australian and global law journals this article builds on Russell Smyth’s pioneering 2000 to 2010 study by exploring anew the question: which Australian-based researchers publish in the top Australian law journals? The article also seeks to answer a second question: which Australian-based authors publish in the globally-recognised top law journals? In doing so, it reveals a number of significant issues and provides valuable insights for individual researchers, law schools and the broader Australian legal academy to bear in mind when attempting to set research expectations and assess research performance, whether at an individual or institutional level.
