National Housing Research Program (NHRP)

Editorial process

High-quality, double-blind, peer-reviewed research

AHURI publishes high-quality, double-blind, peer-reviewed research that provides an accessible and relevant evidence-base for the development of policy, which is available publicly on the AHURI website.

Peer review

The Final Report series is subject to two double-blind peer reviews prior to publication. AHURI has an Editorial Board of international peer reviewers, specialising in a range of housing-related subject areas.

Editorial board

The AHURI Editorial Board is made up of leading international housing and urban researchers, all of whom are eminent in their field. This Board conducts peer reviews of AHURI reports on a double blind basis, and uses a comprehensive set of criteria to assess the quality of the research and its policy relevance.

The majority of members on the Editorial Board panel are based overseas, and come from countries such as Ireland, England, New Zealand, Scotland, Wales, USA, Canada and the People’s Republic of China.

AHURI Final Reports and Positioning Papers are both refereed series presenting the results of original research to a diverse readership of policy-makers, researchers and practitioners.

Every AHURI Final Report and Positioning Paper published after November 2007 is a peer-reviewed publication, identified by an icon on its front cover.
