Looking to publish your research findings? Maybe make a name for yourself in your field of expertise? Think ‘Open’! Open Access is the way to go to make your research and datasets freely available without passwords or paywalls – so everybody gets to see it, fair and square.

This means…

  • Greater exposure for your work
  • Higher citation rates
  • Practitioners can apply your findings
  • Possible collaborators can link up with you
  • No more reinventing the wheel

Plus, if you place your work in the Flinders Academic Commons…

  • Your work is more easily found by Google and Google Scholar, ranking higher in search results
  • Your work is given a permanent URL, which you can disseminate easily through social media, add to your publications list or bibliographies
  • Your work is securely archived for the long term

So think ‘Open’ and talk to the eResearch team at today.
