The CSU Research Output (CRO) Repository presents publicly available research and scholarly outputs. It contributes to the growing international trend for Open Access to scholarly outputs and makes research literature freely available on line. Material submitted to the repository must comply with the Submission Policy to be made publicly accessible. The full text material can not be added to the Open Access Repository if copyright restrictions exist. In such cases citation and abstract will be added. Embargoes will be observed and material can be added to CRO when the embargo is over.
Items submitted will constitute the CSU open access repository and all items are retrievable through open access search engines. The CRO Repository is searchable through the CSU web site and full text items are available for download. CRO will be used to determine funding under the Publications Grants Scheme and to provide data to the Promotions Committee.
For 2007 citation details will be used to calculate DEST points (in the absence of the appropriate pre-published version of the publication) however everything possible should be done to place a pre-print version on CRO. For 2008 publications the pre-print draft must be entered onto CRO to count for Publication Points.
References to research output on staff websites should be citations only. Full text versions of research should be submitted to CRO. Links can be made to CRO from references on staff web pages.
