Reputable, regional and relevant
RMIT Publishing is the leading provider of online research specialising in content from Australia, New Zealand and the Asia Pacific region. Through its Informit brand of online databases and search platform, RMIT Publishing makes it easy for people to search, research and discover the content they need to get better results.
First established in 1989 within the library at RMIT University, RMIT Publishing’s mission was to improve accessibility, visibility and preservation of regional content. These same principles underpin the company’s vision today, as it continues to innovate in response to the needs of the library and research community. RMIT Publishing is committed to three simple principles – locating, digitizing and delivering relevant content. We achieve this by providing a trusted and reliable search platform and via discovery services such as Google Scholar.
With over 500 regional partners and millions of users worldwide, RMIT Publishing has been regarded as the natural home of authoritative regional content for over twenty years. For the Asia Pacific research community, it is the “go-to” for regional insights and specialist publications unavailable elsewhere online. For the global research community, RMIT Publishing is a trusted source of comparative perspectives, supporting a more inclusive, global research approach. With a broad range of content across the humanities and applied sciences, RMIT Publishing serves a wide user community – from students, educators and academics to the business, government and health sectors.
From its head office in Melbourne, Australia, RMIT Publishing works with library consortia, associations and sales teams around the world to increase exposure and readership for its content partners. RMIT Publishing welcomes partnering proposals, content suggestions and product feedback from all its customers and partners.
RMIT Publishing is a business unit of RMIT Training PTY Ltd – a wholly owned subsidiary of RMIT University.

RMIT Publishing journals
RMIT Publishing commissions and publishes three journals, Creative Approaches to Research, Journal of Human Security and Qualitative Research which are included alongside content from over 500 other publishers and partners within the Informit Collections.
The RMIT University Press imprint is dedicated to design research. Design is a core activity in many disciplines and yet there are few publishers who specialise in design-driven research. This book series is based on the premise that the activity of designing constitutes a crucial mode of research specific to the design disciplines.
Other print books available for purchase include titles relating to qualitative research, social sciences and engineering.
