ASKAP Publication Policy

The ASKAP Publication Policy (latest version Novmber 2015) provides CSIRO staff and ASKAP science users with guidelines on the publication of design information, performance measurements and scientific results from the ASKAP telescope.

This document outlines the publication policy for ASKAP. This policy applies to all stages of the ASKAP project, from commissioning (e.g. the Boolardy Engineering Test Array, BETA) up to and including the completion of the full-scope ASKAP array. It will continue to apply during ongoing operations of ASKAP as a part of the Australia Telescope National Facility (ATNF).


A number of publications are available that provide a general introduction to radio astronomy, ASKAP and the SKA, including:

  • A general overview of ASKAP document published by CSIRO [1.7MB PDF]
  • Fact sheets on radio astronomy, ASKAP and the SKA produced by the Australia – New Zealand SKA Coordination Committee (anzSKA) and the international SKA Organisation



Several newsletters are available for the latest information on ASKAP and the SKA:

  • The ASKAP Update is a regular publication dedicated to conveying the latest news about CSIRO's ASKAP project to the international science and engineering communities
  • The informal ASKAP Commissioning Update, reporting on activities of interest to the astronomical community including the progress of ASKAP commissioning.


Information about ASKAP for Industry

Several publications provide technical information on ASKAP and outline opportunities for industry to be involved with the project:

  • The Australian SKA Industry Capability Directory, on the ProjectConnect website, showcases a wide range of Australian companies and organisations with the expertise and excellence to support the development and construction of ASKAP and the SKA. Register your organisation and its capabilities by visiting and following the links.
  • The international SKA project, headquartered in the UK, maintains its own industry engagement policies and procedures. Visit the site for detailed information, including a downloadable SKA Industry Engagement Strategy document.
