Australian Legal Journals Index (ALJI) Online
The Australian Legal Journals Index (ALJI) is an online research tool which allows subscribers to perform comprehensive topic-based research of Australasian journal articles.
Users can browse through journal abstracts or search by subject, cases referred to, legislative references, key citing information or by jurisdiction.
The ALJI provides customers with access to the respected and ever-expanding collection of article digests which have been prepared by the Lionel Murphy Library of the Commonwealth Attorney General’s Department since 1971.
Articles are indexed using a controlled vocabulary of legal terms.
The index is frequently updated with new article abstracts, keeping users up-to-date with the latest developments in their area of specialisation. The ALJI contains more than 100,000 abstracts from over 400 journals.
The ALJI is fully integrated with the Thomson Reuters online journals collection (including complete backsets) with links (subject to separate subscription) to: full-text articles; FirstPoint (the Thomson Reuters case research system); and authorised and specialist law reports, including the Commonwealth Law Reports, Federal Court Reports and Industrial Reports.
The ALJI is ideally suited to the research needs of: academics; researchers; librarians; lawyers; barristers and corporate legal departments.
