Open Access Scholarship
Flinders Academic Commons
The Flinders Academic Commons (FAC) is an institutional repository that stores, indexes and disseminates a range of scholarly outputs created by the University's researchers. It contains text, images, sound and data files, the majority of which are openly accessible.
FAC: Benefits and Considerations
Does your work fit under the FAC Collection Development Policy?
Has it been made publicly available before? (published in a book, available on a public website). If so, who is the copyright holder for the item? Sometimes, copyright is assigned to the publisher as part of the publishing contract; this needs to be checked before including any published work in the FAC.
If it has not been made available before, are there any reasons why it should not be made available publicly? (eg commercial risks, privacy, cultural reasons).
Submission to the FAC
Submission to the FAC is mediated through eResearch @ Flinders in the Library.
- mandated deposit to the FAC, to ensure compliance with NHMRC and ARC open access mandates
- voluntary deposit to the FAC, to increase visibility of your scholarly work.
