About UWA Publishing


UWA Publishing

UWA Publishing (UWAP) shares stories, research and education with the world to encourage thought, inspire action and create and connect with engaged communities.

Award-winning fiction, non-fiction and scholarly works illustrate its strength and diversity in a modern university. 

A division of The University of Western Australia, UWAP has been publishing important books since 1935.




UWA Publishing Scholarly

Academic monographs play an important role as disseminators of research findings in the university sector. We look for lively writing and cogent arguments in the fields of humanities and social sciences, and the natural sciences.

A publishing subsidy may be required to assist in production costs and to ensure that we can reasonably price a standard-sized book. Books are produced in both print and eBook formats.






The Charles and Joy Staples South West Region Publications Fund was established in 1984 by a generous donation to The University of Western Australia by Charles and Joy Staples.

The purpose of the Staples Fund is to make the results of research on the South West of Western Australia widely available to assist the South West community.

The Fund also aims to help those in government and private organisations concerned with South West projects to appreciate the needs and possibilities of the region in the widest possible historical perspective.
