Open access publishing
The Bond University Open Access Policy (USP 1.04) has been in place since October 2013. The Policy specifically addresses the University's support of Green and Gold Open Access research publications and funder requirements. Reasons for adoption of this policy include the benefits of Open Access in:
- Raising your online presence leads to increased visibility, exposure, and impact of your research through expanded readership
- Providing free online access to peer-reviewed research. You are not limited by institutional subscriptions to a defined group of journals
- Increasing public visibility of research being undertaken at Bond University as it facilitates and reveals research activity, knowledge-sharing, and innovation
Read & Publish Agreements
Open Access publishing at Bond is supported by Read & Publish Agreements negotiated by CAUL (Council of Australian University Librarians) on behalf of Australian and New Zealand university libraries.
These agreements enable authors to publish their papers as open access without paying separate Article Processing Charges (APCs) in selected journals for four major publishers (Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press, Springer Nature and Wiley).
See the Read and Publish Agreements page on the Open Access and scholarly publishing guide for more information.

Open access support
Research data management
Research data is increasingly being recognised as a valuable asset and a valid research output. Some journals, particularly in the sciences are starting to require that data be made available to support the research conclusions. Sharing of data is being required as a condition of some research funding and this is likely to increase. The Library can help with:
- Publishing data sets and descriptions for open access and long-term preservation and discovery
- Recommendations for discipline-specific data repositories
- Describing data sets for inclusion in services such as Research Data Australia for wider discovery
- Practical advice and templates for a research data management plan
Bond University Press
Bond University Press operated from 2003 to 2014 and published high quality scholarly publications including a pictorial history of the University entitled Bond University: The first 25 years.
All titles are available as hardcopies in the Bond University Library.
