In the tradition of the Oxford English Dictionary, the Australian National Dictionary Centre - a joint initiative of the Australian National University and Oxford University Press - published The Australian National Dictionary: A Dictionary of Australianisms on Historical Principles in 1988.

Oxford University Press has been publishing in Australia since 1908 and, in recognition of this milestone and as a symbol of gratitude to the Australian people, The Australian National Dictionary has been made available online, free.
