What is Tuwhera?

Tuwhera is an AUT initiative, supported by the Open and Online Initiatives team at AUT Library. It incorporates an open publications hosting service run on open source software (Open Journal Systems and Open Conference Systems), and AUT’s institutional research repository (DSpace).

Open journal and publications hosting

Our hosting services are free of processing, support or administration charges. This is sometimes known as platinum open access.

We provide full training, implementation and publication workflow support.

We assign DOIs (Digital Object Identifiers) to published items via Crossref, ensuring long-term link stability.

We secure long-term preservation of published content via CLOCKSS.

We offer writers and editors a range of Creative Commons machine and human readable licences to maximise dissemination, use and reuse of content with appropriate attribution. More about copyright and licencing.
