CSIRO's publications repository contains records of more than 80 years of CSIRO research publications, such as journal articles, conference papers, books and reports. Some recent records may have full-text attachments available where copyright and confidentiality conditions permit. The repository is fully searchable. You can also browse the collection by author or publication date.
You can access the repository using the search tool on this page or from the repository home page.

From 2006, Client Reports able to be published by Land and Waterwere included in the divison's Science Report Series.

This is a list of public Client Reports produced by the Division. Client Reports are written under contract to the funding body, and are privileged documents. Many are commercial-in-confidence and are restricted. Although others are not commercial-in-confidence, they still require permission from the authors and/or the funding body to be made available. Please enquire from the principal author.
Some publicly available reports are listed below, with most recent at the top of the page.

The report you require may be published as a Technical Report or a Science Report. You can also enter a publication title into our website Search engine. CSIRO Land and Water's publication outputs are often published as part of another series such as Water for a Healthy Country Flagship, Heartlands, Australian Water Conservation and Reuse Research Program.

Some of these files require Acrobat Reader which is free from the Adobe Website. Contact the Communication Group if you have any problems downloading these publications. Hardcopies may be available for posting.
