In addition to pursuing practical community-based actions the project maintains a research and reporting perspective, particularly in relation to language learning, bilingualism, and languages and digital media.

The reports, articles, and other publications listed below have been produced in collaboration with a range of organisations or institutions with an interest in language research and development. Some focus on Island Voices specifically, while others draw on the work of the project as part of a wider topic or debate of local or more general interest.
