Open Access

ARC and NHMRC Open Access policies

All publications associated with research projects funded by the Australian Research Council (ARC) and National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) must be deposited into an institutional repository and/or made available in another open access format within twelve months of the publication date. This ensures that the research is disseminated freely and to as wide an audience as possible. Adherence to the open access policies forms part of the funding agreement with these agencies.

More details are available from the ARC and NHMRC.

The Australasian Open Access Strategy Group has developed a compliance flowchart as a guide to making ARC and NHMRC funded research openly available:
