The relationship between Australian nonprofit community service providers and government has been the subject of a considerable deal of scholarly and practitioner analysis, mostly directed at analysing its changing nature, deficiencies and suggestions for improvement. Socio-legal analysis of the relationship in Australia is a very modest part of this literature (Carney, Ramia & Yeatman 2001; Finn & Smith 1992; McGregor-Lowndes & Turnour 2003; Meltz 1997). It is quite scant compared to analysis of government-business relations and in particular Public Private Partnerships (PPP) (for example, Carroll& Steane 2000; Duncan 2005; Hodge & Greve 2005).

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
