Editorial Services: ASLEC-ANZ

In 2010, along with Barbara Holloway and Elaine Shannon, Cranston initiated the peer-reviewed ejournal AJE (Australasian Journal of Ecocriticism), published through the National Library of Australia. This was the flagship journal of the Association for the Study of Literature and the Environment (ASLE; later, ASLEC). Cranston continued editing and journal managing AJE until 2016/17. In 2019, the ejournal came under new editorship, and the name was changed to Swamphen: a journal of cultural ecology https://openjournals.library.sydney.edu.au
