Where research has been published in a subscription-based journal, open access may be achieved by depositing the research to a digital repository. This self-archiving of published material into a digital research repository is often referred to as green open access.
Repositories are not peer-reviewed, instead hosting articles that have been peer-reviewed e.g. postprints (post-refereed accepted manuscripts) and theses. Some repositories also include preprints (pre-refereed manuscripts), working papers and reports.
Curtin University's digital research institutional repository is espace, a digital collection self-archived research output of Curtin's staff, students and affiliates. espace stores Curtin affiliated peer-reviewed journals and conference papers, working papers, reports, books, book chapters and theses.
For further information on Curtin's institutional repository refer to the Library's Guide to espace.
