In addition, all eligible research that meets government reporting requirements for Higher Education Research Data Collection (HERDC) and Excellence in Research Australia (ERA) must be deposited. This is regardless of whether it has been previously published in an online journal or it was published while affiliated at another institution.
All funded research to comply with individual funding body requirements, eg. National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) and the Australian Research Council (ARC) and other research as specified for funding bids is also required for deposit.
Material that does not meet the criteria of research for DRO is:
Self-submit publications directly into the repository or via a faculty research administrator and agree to the terms and conditions of the DRO deposit agreement which is a once only agreement for all publications and data as stated in the University's Research Conduct Policy, clause 52. This agreement between the author and the University enables DRO staff to deposit the work, check publisher's permissions on behalf of the author and, where possible, open access to research output.
Use the DRO submission guidelines to assist you when you are submitting research output to DRO.
Current year publications that fall into the HERDC category A1, B1, C1 or E1 will require the approval of the faculty in some cases. All other publications, including items published prior to appointment to Deakin University can be sent to DRO or self-submitted for access, storage and preservation.
