UNE considerations

You are required to submit your research output to e-publications@UNE under the terms of the University's e-publications@UNE Deposit Collection & Acess Rule (link below). Also, see About ePublications (link below) for information on submitting a research output.

The University also has an Open Access to UNE Research Publications and Data Policy (link below) supported by Procedures (link below).  Under the terms of this Policy:

  • UNE authors must submit their research outputs to e-publications@UNE;
  • submitted research outputs will be made openly accessible where possible.

The regular submission of your new research outputs ensures you meet the University's reporting requirements and the e-publications@UNE Team will work with you to make your research output openly available.There are many benefits, including:

  • Your research is more visible: each of your publications is indexed in e-publication@UNE and where possible, the closest to publisher version will be accessible
  • Saves time: all your publications are accessible from one place, including forthcoming articles and those from before your employment at UNE.
  • Increases your research impact: each of your publications has a full citation, a free full-text version where permitted and a link to the published version where available, making it easy for people to discover and cite your work
  • Your research output will be archived in a stable, enduring location
  • You can meet funding body requirements for Open Access
