The University's commitment to Open Access was reinforced in August 2014 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 Research Repository within 12 months of publication.

All ANU students and staff are encouraged to look at the policy and associated procedures and contact Open Research staff should they have any questions.
