Reborn online in 2015, the Murdoch Empire Telegraph and Indian Ocean Review, or METIOR for short, is Murdoch students’ very own, collectively produced and published online journal. Though financially supported by the Guild, METIOR has a proud history of editorial independence and has set the student agenda for decades at Murdoch University.
