Summary The paper, which draws on data previously presented at the 2010 World Universities Forum in Davos, Switzerland (Evans & Macauley, 2010), presents and tabulates a variety of trends from the Database of Australian Doctorates, in particular, those relating to the ebb and flow of PhDs in particular selected ‘academic’ and ‘professional’ disciplines in Australia. The paper commences with an overview of the research methods and outcomes. Four academic disciplines (astronomy, chemistry, cultural studies and demography) and four professional disciplines (architecture and building, education, librarianship and nursing) are selected for analysis of their 1987–2006 PhD thesis records. These selections were made to reflect a range of academic and professional disciplines in Australia and to illustrate the changes that have occurred over the past two decades. The period 1987-2006 covers several major changes in Australian university education and PhD education.
