Otago Polytechnic Research


This is that busy time of the year when we are publishing new issues of our journals. In 2019 we have a bumper year with eight different issues of our online Scope journal as well as our usual annual Junctures issue. We will launch these at a function on Wednesday evening 11 December. Please let us know if you would like to join us.

This is our last issue for the year and we would like to take the opportunity to wish you a happy end of year. We hope you have a restful break over the summer. We are looking forward to sharing more research projects with you in 2020.
