New Open Access Principles in 2023Open Access Logo

This one-off webinar will explore the University’s revised Principles for Open Access to Research Outputs at Melbourne. It will be delivered by Dr Zachary Kendal, Scholarly Communications Specialist, and is open for all academic and professional staff, graduate researchers, and students.

Following development and consultation in 2022, and endorsement by University Executive and Academic Board in 2023, the revised Principles for Open Access have now been published on the Open Scholarship website. These Principles better reflect recent developments in the open access landscape and affirm the University’s commitment to disseminating its research as widely as possible to improve the public good.

Join us for an examination of the revised Principles, including:

  • The call for immediate open access to journal articles and conference papers.
  • The University’s supported pathways to open access:
    • using repositories,
    • publishing in open access venues,
    • using open access publishing agreements, and
    • publishing in venues implementing transformative open access models.
  • How to implement a rights retention strategy.
  • The University’s preferred open licence: Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY).
  • The Principles’ alignment with the 2022 NHMRC Open Access Policy and Plan S principles.

Here Lives Our Culture Exhibition @ Baillieu Library Here lives our culture treasures from the East Asian collection - Website Banner

Here Lives Our Culture 斯文在兹 explores cultural materials drawn from more than 20,000 items in the University of Melbourne’s Rare East Asian Collection. To reflect the experience of a traditional Chinese library, the exhibition is organised around the four-category system used in ancient China: Classics, History, Masters, and Literature. China has an extensive history of collecting and classifying books, and libraries have long sat at the heart of its cultural knowledge production. Inspired by the Analects of Confucius and encompassing materials from the seventeenth to the twentieth century, Here Lives Our Culture invites you to learn, share, and connect through our collections at the Baillieu Library.


Visit the exhibition at Level 1 of the Baillieu Library located in the Noel Shaw Gallery and find out more information from Archives and Special Collections department
