Australian Research Council (ARC) Open Access Policy

The ARC has introduced a new Open Access Policy for ARC funded research. The Policy takes effect from 1 January 2013 and will not be applied retrospectively.

The overarching aim of ARC Policy is to ensure that the findings of publicly funded research are made available to other researchers and the wider public as soon as possible.

The ARC expects that any material published from an ARC-funded research activity will be included in an institutional repository. ResearchOnline@JCU is the JCU Institutional Repository. Depositing your publications in ResearchOnline@JCU, and making them available as Open Access, will meet the requirements of the ARC Open Access Policy.
