Aboriginal Studies Press, the publishing arm of AIATSIS, the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies, is inviting expressions of interest from people qualified and able to undertake a review of ASP’s operations. AIATSIS is currently reshaping its priorities and we want ASP to be well positioned to evolve with the rest of the organisation while maintaining its role as one of Australia’s leading Indigenous publishers. The review of ASP will feed into AIATSIS’s forward planning. An understanding of public sector and Indigenous publishing would be valuable.
Aboriginal Studies Press currently publishes a small list of academic and trade books (print and ebooks) in the multidisciplinary area of Australian Indigenous studies. Several books have won or been shortlisted for awards.
Work to be undertaken preferably at the beginning of the new financial year.
