Contribute your research

The University's Open Access Policy contains a commitment to the dissemination of research findings as essential both to differentiate the University's research excellence and support national and international research excellence. This procedure sets out information for researchers to understand how this commitment is fulfilled.

Who can contribute?

According to the ANU Open Access research procedure:

Any staff member (including those holding Honorary status, such as Emeriti and Visitors) and Higher Degree by Research students of the University can submit material to ANU Digital Collections. Undergraduate and Postgraduate by Coursework students can deposit research outputs (such as journal article, theses).

University staff can deposit work they completed before they began at ANU, but must indicate their former affiliation in the "Notes" field.
