Open Access repositories are growing worldwide and provide free online access to many scholarly works and outputs such as e-books and e-chapters, journal articles, conference papers and research data.
This page provides information about gaining access to open access works in institutional research repositories, extensive subject and discipline repositories and via plug-ins which will search compiled collections of open access articles.
The Bond University Research Portal showcases the scholarly output of the University's researchers. All academics are invited to enter the details and upload copyright-compliant versions of their open access research publications into Pure, which provides each researcher with a personal dashboard and a public researcher profile on the Research Portal.
The Library's Scholarly Publications team offers Pure training and support, open access information, and assistance with copyright queries ensuring that Bond authors are well supported to meet the open access publication requirements of research grant funding agencies.
To deposit a full-text copy of a work into Pure, authors must hold the copyright to that work, or it must be a version of the work the publisher allows to be made available in an institution's repository.
All open access works in Pure display the Open Access (open padlock) symbol and may be accompanied by a Creative Commons licence.
Use these sites, or alternatively install these browser extensions or plug-ins, to search for legitimate open access versions of research publications.
Institutional repositories are online collections of institutional research outputs. They provide access to research material but also might include teaching materials, documentation of the activities of the institution etc. The majority of institutional repositories are built using open-source software. They are harvested by major search engines.
Examples of disciplinary and subject-based repositories include:
Using Google Maps graphical interface, Repository 66 shows the location of institutional repositories around the world. Description and information are based on the listings of repositories provided by the Registry of Open Access Repositories (ROAR) and The Directory of Open Access Repositories (OpenDOAR).
Repository 66 uses an color circle code to show the different software used (Dspace, EPrints, BePress, etc.). Clicking on a circle, allows users to finds information about the repository ( URL, the OpenDOAR description, growth, and searching capabilities). It is possible to limit search to the type of platform and country, for example.
