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

As soon as your paper is accepted in final form by the publisher, use our deposit form (login required) to send it to us, and give us your grant code.

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.

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