Griffith’s Information Policy Officer, Anna Daniel, is currently formulating the university’s Open Access Policy. A key part of her work is consulting with colleagues, which is where you come in.

Anna has drafted an Open Access Discussion Paper outlining the key issues around open access, such as licensing, repositories, risks and online open education resources. This Discussion Paper was presented to the Executive Group last week and is now available on our new open access website. Help shape the future influence of Griffith University – please add your comments, opinion and input to the Paper over the next month.

What is open access?

A work is ‘open’ if anyone anywhere anytime can freely use, reuse and  redistribute it — with a requirement to attribute the author (as is standard academic practice). Open access involves applying an open licence to works and making them publicly available. Open licencesOpen Access logo may be applied to creative and scholarly works, data, software, educational  resources and some corporate records. There are clear exceptions where works must not be openly licenced.
