The research outputs featured on Tuwhera are versions of full text scholarly works from AUT's Research Elements system.
Most publishers allow AUT authors to add a version of their manuscript to Tuwhera Open Research. This is called self-archiving or Green Open Access.
Self-archiving involves using the author accepted manuscript with no publisher branding (after peer review) or the pre-print (before peer review).
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.
Sherpa Romeo is an excellent resource for you to check your publisher’s self-archiving policies before entering a publishing agreement.
