Rights and Permissions


If you are a publisher interested in acquiring rights to books published by UWA Publishing please email your request through to our marketing department, marketing-uwap@uwa.edu.au.


If you wish to reproduce any part of a book published by UWA Publishing you must request permission in advance, as the material is protected under copyright law.

This applies to books under either the UWA Publishing, UWAP Scholarly, UWAP Custom, or Staples imprints.

All requests directed to UWAP must be made in writing by either mail or email. Permissions will not be granted verbally.

Please direct your permission request to:
