NHMRC Dissemination Policy update

24 May 2012

The NHMRC have revised their policy for the dissemination of research findings.

The policy is effective 1 July 2012 and will apply to all new or continuing NHMRC grants. Under the revised policy journal publications (not books or chapters) arising from NHMRC-funded research and published after 30 June 2012 must be made available in an institutional repository within 12 months of the publication date.

We are seeking clarification from the NHMRC about the implementation of the policy and are exploring processes to enable researchers comply with the revised policy. We will provide updates via this site and the Research Bulletin.
