School leadership now rightly holds centre stage in discussions about schools, their performance and student learning. However, the availability of quality evidence on school leadership in our country is scarce and what is available is scarcely used. There have been few examples of collected pieces of writing from Australians focusing on school leadership. There are a small number of research studies on Australian school leadership and there is a variable quality of the research that has been published (Mulford, 2007).

Impact and interest:

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.
