The ALRC is committed to improving public access to its work and all past reports and recent consultation papers are available for free viewing and download (as PDFs and html) via this website. Newer reports and consultation documents are also produced in EPUB format—for use in tablets and mobile devices—and are also available free of charge.

Some publications are available in book format for purchase. The ALRC only produces a limited number of hard copy reports and is not able to provide further copies once the initial print run has sold out. You can inquire about publications for sale via publications@alrc.gov.au. Please provide your name, phone number, postal address and the publication/s you are interested in, and we will be in touch to let you know the purchase price, cost of delivery and options for payment.

Most reports cost $40 and summary reports $5, but prices do vary.
