The Australian Research Council (ARC) and National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) policies now require research publications arising from funded projects to be deposited into an open access institutional repository within twelve months from the date of publication. Curtin's institutional repository, espace, can help you meet your obligations.
The ARC open access policy applies to all peer reviewed publications funded by grants awarded in 2013 and onwards.
The NHMRC open access policy applies to all peer reviewed journal publications published after 1st July 2012.
ARC and NHMRC are aware that there may be pre-existing legal or contractual publisher agreements which restrict initial compliance. Library staff checks publisher, ARC and NHMRC policies to ensure compliance, and determine the version of publication permitted as open access in espace.
How do I submit funded publications to espace?
If you wish to contribute material that falls outside the scope of Elements, please contact espace to discuss your requirements.
