The open access model works on the premise that research articles should be freely, immediately and permanently available online to anyone rather than locked away in subscription journals.

UOW’s Open Access Policy was launched in 2014 to promote the increased visibility and discoverability of UOW research publications through support of a Green approach to open access.

Where copyright allows, UOW aims to provide open access to research outputs of UOW staff and students, including articles accepted for publication in scholarly journals, in the University’s open access repository, Research Online.

Open access can also be achieved through placing copies of articles in a subject or discipline based repository such as PubMed or where the publisher of a journal provides free online access to the full content of the journal (e.g. PLOS).
