e-publications@UNE, the institutional repository of the University of New England, showcases the work of our academic and research staff and facilitates research collaboration.
e-publications@UNE is also the single point of entry for recording new research outputs and forms the definitive record of research undertaken at the University of New England.
e-publications@UNE includes all types of scholarly materials including:
e-publications@UNE has a formal Deposit, Collections and Access Policy and supports the University's Open Access to UNE Research Publications and Data Policy.
Where the publishing agreement permits, a version of the full-text content will be made freely available as open access through e-publications@UNE. If this is not possible and the full text content cannot be made freely available, information about the research output, such as a citation and abstract, will provide a description of the material and alternative availability.
The e-publications@UNE Team will assess and manage the copyright compliance on your behalf. You can assist by providing us with a copy of the agreement you entered into with the publisher. Find out more about copyright.
Recording all research outputs enables the University to have a complete picture of its research, to meet its reporting requirements for the federal government, including Higher Education Research Data Collection (HERDC) and Excellence in Research in Australia (ERA).
The University is required to store a copy of the published version of its research output in its institutional repository for audit purposes.
The benefits of contributing to e-publications@UNE
The University Library has undertaken to manage e-publications@UNE as part of its collection. The Library has a
long-term view of the repository and will maintain the content. It is intended that current and future readers will
always have access to your work through e-publications@UNE. This has a number of advantages:
Open access publications can be more frequently cited and have greater impact than research deposited in subscription-only journals.
How to contribute research output to e-publications@UNE
University authors and researchers are eligible to submit their research outputs to e-publications@UNE under the terms of the e-publications@UNE Deposit, Collections and Access Policy.
In order to fulfil both the reporting and open access roles, please upload the following when you submit your research output:
(i) the Publisher version of the research output.
[We require a digital copy or one we can digitise.]
(ii) other versions as appropriate, clearly identified. For example:
(iii) the agreement you entered into with the publisher (if available). This agreement will not be made public.
This can assist us to comply with the conditions of the agreement, but will not be made public.
Which version will be Open Access?
The majority of publishers do not allow their formatted pdfs to be open access, so it is important for UNE authors to keep other versions of their work and submit them to e-publications@UNE.
Where the Publisher version cannot be open access, e-publications@UNE will use whichever version, closest to the final published version, the publisher or copyright owner permits.
You can check your publisher's position on open access.
