New home for regional research and policy resources

A new collaboration between RAI and APO will secure access to regional research and policy resources into the future.

In November 2017, [In]Form RAI’s online library of regional research moved to APO. Since 2012, RAI has gathered over 2500 resources in the [In]Form library. [In]Form has grown into a valuable tool for government, academics and regional communities and has helped to guide RAI’s policy agenda.

Moving to APO will enrich APO’s regional content and allow it to grow into the future. APO is updated daily, moderated by editors and features user-friendly search and browsing. It is used by an extensive audience of policy makers, practitioners and researchers.

Since 2016, APO has employed a Regional Development Editor, based at RMIT University, who specialises in regional resources.

APO and RAI are confident this collaboration will allow us to continue to share knowledge, ideas and practical solutions to improve prosperity in regional Australia.

All [In]Form content will be available at

It will continue to be available at for a certain period but will not be updated.
