Open Access

Open Scholarship policy

The AUT Open Scholarship Policy was approved by the University in June 2020.

It makes AUT research, specifically journal articles and published conference papers, open by default.

Find more information on the Open Access Policy Questions and Answers page.

Read & Publish agreements

AUT Library has signed up to CAUL Consortium "Read and Publish" agreements with academic journal publishers. 
These agreements enable corresponding authors from AUT to publish open access with some major publishers at no cost to themselves or the faculty. 

See our Read & publish agreements guide for details on publishers, journals, article allowances and the submission process.
