Australasian Agribusiness Perspectives is a companion volume to the Australasian Agribusiness Review and is designed to be an outlet for material of substance about agribusiness issues which are of a more current, topical nature. Being less substantial and enduring pieces of work than articles in the Review, submissions are not required to undergo the extensive peer refereeing of those published in Australasian Agribusiness Review.

Editorial criteria for publication in Australasian Agribusiness Perspectives is that the articles contain thoughtful and insightful perspectives and judgements about current issues, questions, policies affecting the way agricultural-related business operate. Such articles will fall within the following broad categories:
- substantial views of practitioners and observers on current aspects of the business operating environment affecting the operation of agricultural-related businesses in Australia;
- thorough descriptions and analysis of components of agribusiness systems;
- output from short term research such as consultancy work which is attempting to answer specific questions currently being encountered in the business environment by agribusiness firms and public agencies;·
- more widely accessible versions of the essence of complex and arcane theoretical arguments and explanations about the operation and development of aspects of agribusiness which are fully developed in other publications;
- part of a forum dealing with a topical issue
