ARC Open Access Policy released
18 January 2013
The ARC has introduced a new Open Access Policy for ARC funded research which takes effect from 1 January 2013.
According to this new policy the ARC requires that any publications arising from an ARC supported research project must be deposited into an open access institutional repository within a 12 month period from the date of publication.
The overarching aim of ARC's Policy is to ensure that the findings of publicly funded research are made available to the wider public as soon as possible.
This policy brings ARC further into line with the NHMRC and with other international research funding agencies such as those in the United States and the United Kingdom.
