Contribute entries to the Register
We are pleased to receive information from members of the public on women or women's organisations that may be suitable for inclusion in the Register.
Please contact the AWAP Executive Officer using our contact form for more information.
Within a policy framework set by the AWAP Management Committee, the Executive Officer is responsible for ensuring the integrity of the Register, including the maintenance of high academic standards in the preparation of entries. It is her decision whether entries are suitable for inclusion in the Register.
The Executive Officer is also responsible for the allocation of priorities within a given work program, including when time may be allocated to upload one-off entries to the Register.
As the NFAW is a not for profit organisation, funds are tight and an entry loading charge may be applied. The Executive Officer can advise you as to whether such a charge will apply.
Publication status of the Register
The Australian Women's Register is a registered serial (ISSN 2207-3124), published quarterly in February, May, August and November.

Support a committee
The NFAW has established a national AWAP Management Committee to oversee and manage the total project. Membership includes selected Board representatives and professional experts with backgrounds in archives, librarianship and history.
Local committees operate in Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra. They are established by the NFAW Board on a case by case basis and report to the Board through the AWAP Management Committee.
- Identify archives that are of interest to the Project and broker suitable archival arrangements;
- Liaise with archival institutions;
- Develop fund raising strategies to support the Project.
For information about the activities of the NSW committee click here.
An Executive Officer is responsible for the day-to-day management of the Project, including the maintenance of high academic standards in the preparation of entries. If you are interested in contributing to the work of AWAP or if you have general enquiries please contact the Executive Officer via email.
