Altitude is a peer reviewed journal of emerging innovative and creative work in the humanities. Altitude is committed to the democratisation of writing, research and knowledge, and to experimentation with new journal practices. It brings emerging and experienced scholars into discussion with writers and thinkers outside the academy. We use web-based open-access technologies to provide access to research (includes audio and visual material), and to extend the parameters of intellectual exchange.
Altitude was founded by Emily Potter and Robyn Tucker in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Adelaide in 2000. It was published online from issues 1 (2000) to 8 (2007) through the API Network at Curtin University. It was relaunched in 2010 with an expanded multi-media and creative scholarly publishing agenda, and through the University of New South Wales and Deakin University.
