COVID-19 (coronavirus): Latest advice for the Bond community.

Scholarly publishing & open access

Assistance with getting your research and other scholarly works published, communicated and included in government reporting is available from the Library, along with copyright and other licensing information.

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.

Bond University Open Access Journals

Bond University publishes a number of quality peer-reviewed ‘Gold’ model journals that don’t require payment of Article Processing Charges.  All journal articles have a Creative Commons licence and can be downloaded and shared according to the terms of the licence. See the About page of each journal for details.

The journals are hosted on the Scholastica platform which enables journal editors and administrators to manage the entire peer review and publishing process online.

Open access support

This guide provides recommendations for high quality open access resources, freely accessible to anyone.

Open Access collections and 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.  

Read the guide

Bond University's research repository includes many open access versions of research publications by Bond researchers as well as theses produced by higher degree research students.

The Library supports verification of research outputs, datasets, and the description of student theses records in the portal.

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
