About the bibliography

The Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet Bibliography is a comprehensive database of published material concerning Indigenous health. It is free to use and is updated most days.

The HealthInfoNet uses a broad definition of health and includes literature from a wide range of issues relating to Indigenous health. Many of these lie outside the direct responsibility of the health sector, such as cultural, social, and environmental contexts of health.

What can be found in the HealthBibliography?

The Bibliography comprises records of published reports, books, book chapters, journal articles, unpublished ''grey literature'' and resource material. Grey literature includes theses, unpublished reports by government and non-government organisations, discussion and working papers, statistical documents and conference papers. Resource material in the Bibliography includes items such as fact sheets, brochures, videos and podcasts.

The time period covered is from 1841 to the present, and links to original sources are provided where available. There are currently over 30,000 bibliographic records in the database.

How do we identify the publications?

New publications are identified almost daily from a wide variety of sources using a range of techniques. Sources include health-related databases and indexes, publisher websites, online journals, the websites of government and non-government organisations, research repositories, clearinghouses, Australian university databases and library catalogues, and also by the use of search engine alerts.

We are also notified of new literature by users posting information on our message stick, through communication with our research staff, or by submitting via our Share your information page.
