Open Access for ACU Researchers

Open Access for ACU Researchers


This video will tell you all you need to
know about making your research Open Access. Open Access means making your
research freely available to any user online. Open Access to your publications
allows you to share your knowledge and means your research will reach the
widest possible audience. This carries with it a potential for greater citation
and impact. Open Access allows fellow researchers to build on recent findings
and to advance knowledge. Major Australian research funders recognize
these benefits and have attached Open Access requirements to their research
grants. You can choose to make your work Open Access by one of two ways –
publishing in an Open Access journal or by depositing an Open Access version of
your published work in an Open Access institutional repository. This choice is
a decision for authors. If publishing in an Open Access journal
you should ensure that the appropriate Creative Commons license is assigned to
your publication. This enables you to retain control over how your
publications can be shared and adapted under the terms of attribution.
Publishing in an Open Access journal may incur an article processing fee. The
Corresponding Author is usually responsible for ensuring payment of this
charge. Alternatively you can publish in a subscription journal, and following
publication, deposit an Open Access version of the article in ACU’s Research
Bank, our institutional repository. You can deposit the Open Access version of your article in Research Bank by sending it to Library Research Services
at [email protected] The version permitted for deposit in
Research Bank is the author’s accepted manuscript. The author’s accepted
manuscript is the version of your article after peer-review and with the
changes included. This version will have been accepted for publication, but should
not contain any publisher formatting, pagination or branding; and has not gone
through the final copy editing process. We can provide advice on publishers’
copyright policies so you can ensure you are complying with copyright
requirements around your research. For further information and support about
open access to research publications at ACU, email [email protected] or contact your librarian.
