Scholarly publishing & open access

Assistance with getting your scholarly works published is available from the Library. This includes:

  • communication
  • inclusion in government reporting
  • copyright and other licensing information

Open access publishing

The Bond University Open Access Policy (USP 1.04) has been in place since October 2013. 

The policy specifically addresses the University's support of Green and Gold Open Access research publications and funder requirements. 

Reasons for adoption of this policy include the benefits of Open Access in:

  • Raising your online presence leads to increased visibility, exposure, and impact of your research through expanded readership
  • Providing free online access to peer-reviewed research. You are not limited by institutional subscriptions to a defined group of journals
  • Increasing public visibility of research being undertaken at Bond University as it facilitates and reveals research activity, knowledge-sharing, and innovation

Read and publish agreements

Open access publishing is supported by read & publish agreements negotiated by CAUL (Council of Australian University Librarians) on behalf of Australian and New Zealand university libraries.

These agreements mean authors can publish their papers openly with no article processing charges (APCs). The selected journals are with nine major publishers:

  • Cambridge University Press
  • CSIRO Publishing
  • Elsevier
  • Hindawi
  • Oxford University Press
  • Sage
  • Springer Nature
  • Taylor & Francis
  • Wiley

Research data management

Research data is increasingly recognised as both a valuable asset and as valid research output. 

Some journals, particularly in the sciences, are starting to require that data be made available to support research conclusions. An increasing trend is for shared data to be a required research funding. 

The Library can help with:

  • Publishing data sets and descriptions for open access, long-term preservation and discovery
  • Recommendations for discipline-specific data repositories
  • Describing data sets for inclusion in services such as Research Data Australia for broader discovery and dissemination
  • Practical advice and templates for a research data management plan
