Step 1: Report your publications for Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) via the Researcher Portal (login required). This will ensure a record for your publication is added to the Research Repository.
Step 2: After reporting your research outputs for ERA, send a copy of the accepted manuscript version of your output to email@example.com.
Most publishers permit the 'accepted manuscript' version to be made available open access via the Research Repository. The accepted manuscript is the final author-created, peer-reviewed version that was accepted for publication.
You can find publishers’ self-archiving policies on the journal’s website and the SHERPA/RoMEO database.
Publishers use the following names for the different versions of manuscripts. It is important that you know the difference between them so you understand your rights when signing and complying with an agreement.
