This remarkable and unique reference is a comprehensive listing and review of internationally peer-reviewed suicide research compiled by the prestigious Australian Institute for Suicide Research and Prevention (AISRAP) since 2009.

This latest volume covers research from  May 2016 – October 2016. It is an essential and accessible focused reference designed to keep Australian governments, NGOs, health workers and scholars constantly updated on new evidence from the scientific community in the field of suicidology.

Designed for non-specialists at the professional level it provides  a list of catalogued references; reproductions of key abstracts; and comments on the research by experts in the field on the implementation of the studies’ findings in the Australian context.

A separate section reports all items retrievable from major electronic databases, catalogued on the basis of their prevailing reference to fatal and non-fatal suicidal behaviours, with various sub-headings such as epidemiology, risk factors, and prevention.
