At the end of March 2020, a new series of the Queensland Reports will commence.
The new series will continue to be known as the Queensland Reports, but will be published as a set of consecutively numbered volumes – with three volumes published each year.
A new form of citation will also be adopted for this series, using round brackets to identify the year of the judgment and a simpler abbreviation for the series – “QR” rather than “Qd R”. So judgments in the new series will be cited in the form: (2019) 1 QR 123.
The new series is being introduced to improve the typography of the Queensland Reports, by moving to a style which is clearer and more readable.
The ICLRQ is particularly grateful to our former editors, Justice Roger Derrington and Justice Sarah Derrington of the Federal Court of Australia, for initiating the work on this project. Particular thanks also needs to go to Chairman John McKenna QC, Editor Mark Evans, Production Manager Stephanie Enarbia and Michael Makras for their work in bringing this project to completion.
As with all authorised law reports of the Supreme Court of Queensland, a complete set of this new series will be available online, free of charge, to registered users of this website.
