ANU publishes revised Open Access policy & procedures

28 August 2014

The University's commitment to Open Access was reinforced in August with the publication of a revised Open Access policy and associated procedures-including the research procedure and education procedure.

The new policy and associated procedures have been discussed extensively through University committees, and reflect the University's commitment to broad dissemination of knowledge and the changing landscape of publication including recent directives from the Australian Research Council (ARC), the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) and other funders.

Researchers are now required by the University to deposit a copy of most research outputs to the University's open access research repository, the ANU Digital Collections, within 12 months of publication. Our commitment to the dissemination of research findings supports the University's research impact.

All ANU students and staff are encouraged to look at the policy and associated procedures and contact the manager of the ANU open access repository, Anne Lahey, should they have any questions.
