General Information

CSIRO Publishing welcomes new authors and suggestions for books. The types of publications we seek include:

  • professional reference works, in both print and electronic form, for research scientists, academics and those working in industry
  • books that interpret science issues for a broader readership, mainly in the subject areas of natural history, the environment and the impact of science on society
  • practical, solution-oriented books related to Australian agriculture, allied industries and the urban environment

Our authors are drawn from universities, research institutions and professional consultancies throughout the world. We are actively expanding our program with titles that have international scope and appeal.

If you are considering writing, the first step is to prepare a publishing proposal outlining your ideas. You do not need to have a finished manuscript for us to be able to assess your proposal. The earlier in the writing process we receive your proposal, the better we are able to guide you so that your manuscript meets the needs of your readers. We consider such manuscript development an integral part of the publishing process.
