Compliance with NHMRC and ARC policy on Open Access
Both the NHMRC and the ARC now have in place policies that require publications arising from supported research projects to be deposited into an open access institutional repository within a twelve month period from the date of publication. This is a strengthening of the previous policies which encouraged, but did not require, deposit in open access repositories.
To assist University of Adelaide researchers to comply with these policies the Library’s Digital Services unit maintains an Institutional Repository branded as Adelaide Research & Scholarship.
Flowcharts for both ARC and NHMRC policies are available to step you through the decision making process about what you need to do to comply with the policy.
Additionally the Journal Manuscript Versioning flyer may help in determining which version of a paper is appropriate to deposit. In the majority of cases it is the Accepted manuscript.
In short the following steps will help to ensure the highest possible compliance with these policies -
- Retain a version of your work with changes made subsequent to Peer Review. This is variously referred to as the Author’s version, Accepted version or Post-print.
- Determine whether your publishing agreement allows you to deposit this version of your work in AR&S.
a) If it does, provide the required information to AR&S
b) If it does not, ensure you provide explanation of this in the Final Report
