The FAC and the new ARC Open Access Policy

The Australian Research Council (ARC) recently announced its new Open Access Policy, and now requires that any publication arising from an ARC supported research project must be deposited into an open access institutional repository within a twelve month period from the date of publication. The policy is effective as of 1 January 2013.

The Flinders Academic Commons (FAC) is the University’s open access institutional repository. Deposit of your publication in the FAC satisfies ARC requirements without the need to use an open access publisher, which may incur a cost.
