When preparing a paper for publication, please follow journal style and layout as closely as possible. It may help if you consult a recent copy of the journal or a sample issue online. Detailed guidelines are set out in the Author Instructions.


Reprints can be ordered prior to publication. An order form is sent to the corresponding author with final page proofs.

CSIRO Publishing supplies the corresponding authors with a free PDF of their paper upon publication. Authors may also order hardcopy reprints of their papers at the time they complete author corrections. All papers are also available from our website either by subscription or sale of individual papers. Note: the use of the PDF is covered in the journal’s Copyright/Licence to Publish.

In summary you may:

  • Send copies to individual colleagues for non-commercial purposes
  • Print out and distribute copies to colleagues attending any conference presentation you make
  • Include the PDF in a course pack, subject to the usual copyright licensing agency arrangements.

However, you may not include the PDF on any website or on any server, including an institutional repository. You may place a pre-publication version of your work on your personal website or in your institutional repository provided that you include a link to the definitive version on the journal’s website. Please contact the Permissions Manager if you wish to use the PDF for any purpose other than those listed above.


The journal is indexed/abstracted in a wide variety of databases.
