Bond University (29 Jul 2011)



3. The Policy 3.1 Open Access a. Bond University supports the principle of open access to knowledge. b. This policy is adopted on the basis that where researchers and scholars are willing to share their work, without payment, for the sake of inquiry, knowledge and public benefit, they should not be prevented by restrictive laws, practices or publishing contracts. b. This repository conforms to OAI (Open Archives Initiative) standards so that it is interoperable with search engines and other archives. c. Authors are encouraged to retain copyright in their work where possible (by not assigning copyright to the publisher), and where the publisher insists on a transfer of copyright, to assert their right to deposit their work in the institutional repository. Bond University supports publishing and copyright agreements that allow authors to retain copyright (by only taking a licence to publish) or that allow authors to self-archive. 3.2 Eligible Depositors a. All Bond University Staff and Students (in particular HDR Students) are eligible to contribute to epublications@ bond. 3.3 Deposit Requirements a. The University repository is the designated host for the research outputs of the University. b. Linking from the University website to material in the repository is acceptable and appropriate.
