First published in 2015, the ATLAANZ Journal offers a valuable forum for members of the tertiary learning advisor community to contribute to the growing body of learning advisor literature.

The ATLAANZ Journal is a professional practice journal, so we encourage ATLAANZ members to submit best practice articles and book reviews as well as research reports. Best practice articles can be case studies or descriptions of practice about such topics as working with learners, including international, postgraduate, Māori, Pasifika, neurodiverse, and rainbow learners; innovative practice; learning partnerships; and responding to environmental changes.
