In collaboration with the National Library of Australia, Inside Indonesia is pleased to announce that an archive of editions of the magazine currently only available in hardcopy form – editions 1 (1983) to 89 (2007) – are now available in digital form.

View the archive

90 digitised editions of the magazine are available through the NLA catalogue where they can be accessed as an e-book for each individual edition fully searchable by keyword.

For many of our current readers this may be the first time you have had a chance to see Inside Indonesia in its original form as a physical magazine. For others we hope it will bring a welcome wave of nostalgia and reminiscences.

These 90 editions span twenty-four years of uninterrupted publishing of the quarterly magazine in printed form, during which time Indonesia has been through huge social and political changes. Inside Indonesia has documented these progressions, challenges and achievements across that period with a particular focus on themes of democracy, human rights, gender and racial equality, tolerance and environmental sustainability.

Over these decades, as today, editors and writers for the magazine include leading Indonesia commentators from across the world and prominent Indonesian intellectuals, writers and activists.

We believe this is a significant and treasured resource for those both students of Indonesia, Indonesians themselves and those outside Indonesia who are keen to understand its peoples and cultures.
