Research funding obligations

Meeting funder Open Access obligations

Both the Australian Research Council (ARC) and the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) have open access policies designed to bring publicly-funded Australian research to a worldwide audience.

Your institutional Open Access repository, Swinburne Research Bank, is part of this process.

How to deposit your funded publications for Open Access

Send the bibliographic citation for the new publication to Research Bank as soon as it is accepted for publication.

  • Provide the grant funder code for the project.
  • Attach the accepted manuscript version of your work to the email/deposit form.

The accepted manuscript is the final Word or LaTeX draft you sent to the publisher after peer review but without the publisher's formatting and logo. We will apply a coversheet with citation info and Copyright statements per publisher's requirements, and convert to PDF format for hosting.

You can send this to us via email to or via our deposit form (Login required).

We will investigate and ensure compliance with publisher self-archiving policy and apply embargoes where applicable.
