Publishing with us

We accept research-based works in the areas of land rights and native title, Indigenous studies including history, anthropology, cultural, colonial and legal studies, education, governance, linguistics and health. Our research publications are open-access and available in at least one ebook format. Many of our edited volumes, monographs and research reports are available in hardcopy and purchased via our online shop.


Please complete a research publications submission cover sheet (DOCX - 86KB) when sending your submission.

Submissions can either be emailed to or posted to Research Publications, the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies, GPO Box 553, Canberra, ACT, 2601.

Please note that we do not return submissions.


Initially your submission will be read by AIATSIS research and publications staff who may seek external assessments from peer reviewers. Substantial works may be assessed by our Publishing Advisory Committee which is an independent advisory group that reports to the AIATSIS CEO.

If your manuscript is accepted for publication, research publications staff will contact you. You will be kept informed throughout the process up until your work is published.
