Making your peer-reviewed research publication available through Open Access can increase the number of times your publication is accessed, read and cited. But the Open Access model typically costs significant funds, making it difficult for Researchers to be able to afford this attractive option.
The Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research), Professor Caroline Finch, is pleased to provide an allocation of up to $200,000 from the Strategic Research Fund (SRF) in 2019 for this purpose. The scheme is open to any research-active staff member across ECU, to assist them to make their imminent 2019 publications available online through Open Access.
