Established in 2010, On The Record aims to deliver news and content to UniSA students and the wider South Australian community.

On The Record is an online publication wholly run by the University of South Australia’s journalism students, focusing on topics and issues that appeal to the student community.

On The Record’s editorial team intends to bring a fresh perspective to the publication, to reflect and represent student views and opinions by bringing a voice to the student community.
