ASKAP Publication Policy

The ASKAP Publication Policy (revised May 2018) 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


ASKAP Science Promotion Guidelines

The ASKAP Science Promotion Guidelines (June 2018) provides CSIRO staff and ASKAP science users and partner institutions with guidelines on the promotion of ASKAP-related results or news to the broader community, in order to reach the widest possible audience with the greatest impact.


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.
