Political Science and International Relations: Official Information Act 1982 : A bibliography

Find an article, chat to your librarian and much much more...

Description and Scope

This bibliography builds on research completed for a master's project in 2001.

The focus is on published works and theses related to New Zealand's Official Information Act 1982 (OIA).

A few entries focus on the local government equivalent (LGOIMA) and some work also relates to government recordkeeping practices, a key component of any effective access system.

Many of the more recent works will be available online although some older New Zealand content may be harder to source. I have more recently added references from before 1982, including some related to the various Freedom of Information bills from the 1970s, to provide some more historical context.

The attempted reference style is APA and the list has been compiled using EndNote software.
