Griffith Open - Institutional Repository

What can I deposit?

How do I know if I can submit a journal article?

Many publishers do allow you to archive your work on your institution’s repository, and where possible, we will use the final published version.
Where a publisher does not allow their final version to be used in institutional repositories, they usually will allow use of either: 
pre-prints (this is the version of the paper pre-refereeing/pre-peer review)
and/or post-prints (this is the final draft post-refereeing/post-peer review)
In the case of a published article, a link to the DOI and the publisher’s homepage can be provided. 

Co-authored works are acceptable, providing that one of the authors is a Griffith College member of staff. The depositor is required to obtain permission from other author(s). 

If you are unsure of the journal publishers’ archiving policy, the SHERPA/RoMEO website provides a summary of many policies. If you are in any doubt or are looking for guidance, please contact us. We can also contact the publishers on your behalf.
