Open Access and Copyright

Open Access logo Open Access and Copyright

Open Access is the concept that free access is provided to research worldwide via the internet, including publicly funded research.

At Deakin University this is provided via DRO, where possible, and supported by the University's Research Conduct Policy, clause 53:

All research publications will be made open access, available to anyone on the web, except where this is restricted by copyright law and publisher policy. If researchers wish material to not be made publicly available they must lodge a request for it to be confidential.

Search over 8000 full text articles and other research types through DRO's advanced search screen by selecting 'Open Access works only'. The openly accessible work is also clearly identified by the internationally recognised symbol Open Access logo from any search results screen.

The Library's Open Access and Licensing website, OPAL, provides further information on Open Access and research.
