How we manage AUT's research outputs

The research outputs featured on Tuwhera are versions of full text scholarly works from AUT's Research Elements system.

Many publishing contracts allow AUT authors to add the author accepted manuscript with no publisher branding (after peer review) or the pre-print (before peer review) to be added to a research repository, such as Tuwhera Open Research. This is called self-archiving or Green Open Access.

Why self-archive?

Adding articles to Tuwhera Open Research

Right to self-archive

Journal publishers usually acquire the copyright to scholarly articles through a publication agreement with the author. Their policies then determine what authors can do with their work.

Publisher policies are always checked by the scholarly communications librarians before any version is published on Tuwhera Open Research.
