CSIRO, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, is Australia's national science agency and one of the largest and most diverse research agencies in the world.
Large-scale, long-term, multidisciplinary science to address Australia's major national challenges and opportunities.
CSIRO manages national facilities and collections that are opened to researchers around Australia and overseas.
Discover more than 80 years worth of CSIRO's research publications.
Our 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

A new material that prevents plastic from ageing has been developed by CSIRO - offering huge environmental and cost savings for the energy industry.
Australia’s transition to a digital economy is opening up new and exciting opportunities for innovation and global competitiveness. It is driving change across key sectors such as healthcare, energy and government and facilitating greater levels of social and economic prosperity.
Collections of biological specimens are fundamental to scientific understanding and characterisation of natural diversity — past, present and future. This paper presents a system for liberating useful information from physical collections by bringing specimens into the digital domain so they can be more readily shared, analysed, annotated and compared.
Bugs, beware. A new antibacterial fabric that kills off deadly pathogens could be a new line of defence against nasty infections in our hospitals. For the past year we’ve been working with scientists from RMIT University to develop the fabric that has been shown to destroy both E.coli and Staphylococcus aureus, commonly known as Golden Staph, within just 10 minutes of contact.
We can effectively monitor soil condition---and develop sound policy to offset the emissions of greenhouse gases---only with accurate baselines. Currently, estimates of soil organic C for countries or continents are unavailable or largely uncertain because they are derived from sparse data, with large gaps over many areas of the Earth.
Feeding a growing global population in a changing climate presents a significant challenge to society. The projected yields of crops under a range of agricultural and climatic scenarios are needed to assess food security prospects.
The implications of anthropogenic climate change for biodiversity at global and local scales are not yet fully known or appreciated. Here we use the velocity of climate change to derive trajectories corresponding to organisms tracking their climatic niche.
At Matijevic Hill on the rim of Endeavour Crater, the rover Opportunity has investigated the oldest rocks it has yet encountered, dating from the Noachian era.
The potentially fatal Irukandji Syndrome is relatively common in tropical waters throughout the world. It is caused by the sting of the Irukandji jellyfish, a family of box jellyfish that are almost impossible to detect in the water due to their small size and transparency.
A phenomenon in the Indian Ocean that affects events in southeast Australia is helping to predict extreme weather up to six months in advance.
