Research UNE Overview

 

Research UNE is the institutional repository of the University of New England, which showcases the work of our academic and research staff and facilitates research collaboration.

Research UNE is also the single point of entry for recording new research outputs and forms the definitive record of research undertaken at the University of New England.

Research UNE includes all types of scholarly materials including:

 

●          Journal articles;

●          Conference papers;

●          Books and book chapters;

●          Higher degree research theses;

●          Research datasets; and

●          Non-traditional research outputs

 

Research UNE has a formal Deposit, Collections and Access Rule and supports the University's Open Access to UNE Research Publications and Data Policy: https://policies.une.edu.au/view.current.php?id=00113. See also, Submitting Publications

 

Where the publishing agreement permits, a version of the full-text content will be made freely available as open access through Research UNE. If this is not possible and the full text content cannot be made freely available, information about the research output, such as a citation and abstract, will provide a description of the material and alternative availability. For further information, see Open Access types

 

The Research UNE Team will assess and manage the copyright compliance on your behalf. You can assist by providing us with a copy of the agreement you entered into with the publisher. Find out more about copyright

Recording all research outputs enables the University to have a complete picture of its research, to meet its reporting requirements for the federal government, including Higher Education Research Data Collection (HERDC) (HERDC Categories) and Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA).

The University is required to store a copy of the published version of its research output in its institutional repository for audit purposes.

Account Set up and Account Claiming

Research UNE allows UNE users access through their UNE credentials. The system will attempt to connect your profile with any pre-existing Researcher Profiles established for outputs already held in the repository. This connection takes some time to be processed following your first time logging in to Research UNE. Please allow a few minutes for Research UNE to complete the connection.

 

Researchers are also able to search for outputs, identify existing Researcher Profiles, and claim them as their own. Once again, the process for connecting the profile to your own will take a few minutes to be processed.

Benefits of contributing to Research UNE

The University Library has undertaken to manage Research UNE as part of its collection. The Library has a long-term view of the repository and will maintain the content. It is intended that current and future readers will always have access to your work through Research UNE. This has a number of advantages:

 

·         Your research is more visible: each of your publications has a permanent link, making dissemination of your research to colleagues quick and easy.

·         Saves time: all your publications are accessible from one place, including forthcoming articles and those from before your employment at UNE. This will aid in the processes around academic promotion and grant submission.

·         Increases your research impact: each of your publications has a full citation, a free full-text version (where permitted) and a link to the published version where available, making it easy for people to discover and cite your work.

·         Ensures longevity of your research: Your research output will be archived in a stable, enduring location.

 

Open access publications can be more frequently cited and have greater impact than research deposited in subscription-only journals. See OpCit for more information: http://opcit.eprints.org/oacitation-biblio.html

How to contribute research output to Research UNE

In order to fulfil both the reporting and open access roles, please upload the following when you submit your research output:

(i) The Publisher version of the research output. [We require a digital copy or one we can digitise.]

(ii) Other versions as appropriate, clearly identified. For example:

·         Post-peer review version: The version of your work after peer review, but still in the format originally accepted by the publisher (most commonly a word.doc), except with added revisions (sometimes called the post-print). Under the University's Open Access to UNE Research Publications and Data Policy, submission of this version is a University requirement.

·         Pre-peer review version: The version before revisions arising from peer review are made (sometimes called the pre-print) and still in the format you originally submitted to the publisher. You can attach corrigenda to this version if you wish, following the peer review process. Note that this version may be made openly accessible if the use of a later version is not permitted.

·         Other version: This can include conference proceedings, other research output submitted to Research UNE which is not peer reviewed, as well as records relating to your research output.

(iii) The agreement you entered into with the publisher (if available). This can assist us to comply with the conditions of the agreement, but will not be made public.

 

Which version will be Open Access?

The majority of publishers do not allow their formatted pdfs to be open access, so it is important for UNE authors to keep other versions of their work and submit them to Research UNE.

Where the Publisher version cannot be open access, Research UNE will use whichever version, closest to the final published version, the publisher or copyright owner permits.

For more information, see Open Access

Submitting Publications

 

UNE policy requires completed research outputs to be submitted to Research UNE under the following policies:

UNE Deposit, Collection, and Access Rule - https://policies.une.edu.au/view.current.php?id=00113

UNE Research Data and Materials Rule - https://policies.une.edu.au/document/view-current.php?id=208

 

Submissions to Research UNE are also governed by the Open Access policy:

Open Access to Research Publications and Data - https://policies.une.edu.au/view.current.php?id=00217


Researchers are encouraged to submit all works. While we appreciate receiving records of your earlier outputs, those published within the current ERA timelines are the University’s current priority. Submissions priorities are governed by the upcoming ERA assessment windows.

 

ERA

ERA stands for Excellence in Research for Australia, an initiative which assesses research quality within Australia's higher education institutions.

 

The current ERA round will be held in 2018. The ERA 2018 reference period for research outputs is 1 January 2011–31 December 2016.

 

Your outputs can be recorded in multiple repositories. This happens when researchers from different universities collaborate and co-author articles, or when an author moves from one institution to another. The institution(s) that may claim your outputs during ERA 2018 will depend on your employment on the census date, 31st March 2017. Researchers are responsible for ensuring their relevant research outputs are included in e-publications@UNE prior to these assessments being undertaken.  We encourage all researchers to submit records describing their outputs on a regular basis.

 

Further information about ERA is available online on the ERA website, here: https://www.arc.gov.au/excellence-research-australia. You can also find information on the Researcher Support LibGuide about ERA, here: http://une.au.libguides.com/research/era

Information about submitting records of specific types

NTRO

A Non-Traditional Research Output (NTRO) is an item or artefact that arises from a creator's research and is not published in a traditional format. A NTRO can take many forms, and this variety is reflected by the five main NTRO Types and Sub-categories. A NTRO can be a painting, written or recorded music or be intangible, such as an event or performance.

Submitting Research Datasets

If you have completed a research project for the University of New England that included the collection, generation, or manipulation of research data that produced original datasets, then you are required to archive and register those datasets with Research UNE. Registration of research data through Research UNE is achieved through submissions to the collections ‘Dataset’ or ‘Dataset no attachments’. Research data in digital format needs to be attached to the dataset record when submitting. For physical research data, storage needs to be arranged with your faculty and the storage location included in the dataset registration.

UNE Library will provide advice, but optimisation of file formats and folder structures for storage is the responsibility of the UNE Researcher. When considering what research data is required for registry and archiving, UNE Researchers need to be governed by the requirements of verifiability and reproducibility. Your research dataset submissions are expected to service the requirements of your minimum retention periods as set by either the Ethics Board or the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research.

 

DOI Minting

Research UNE can mint Digital Object Identifiers through services provided by the Australian Research Data Commons. ANDS provides UNE with a manual DOI minting service. Research UNE’s DOI minting is intended to service Research Datasets. Publications and other research outputs are expected to provide DOIs as minted by their publishers.

Requests to mint DOIs for research outputs that aren’t datasets will need to be confirmed by your Faculty leadership. DOIs can only be minted for items within RUNE.

Copyright

Copyright ownership

The copyright owner, usually the publisher or the author of a work, retains copyright ownership rights under copyright law.

UNE has a non-exclusive right to store and use content deposited in Research UNE under the following UNE Policy documents:

●          Research UNE Deposit, Collections and Access Policy and

●          Open Access to UNE Research Publications and Data Policy and Procedures

 

Managing your copyright

UNE Policy requires UNE authors to submit their refereed research articles and conference papers to Research UNE with a view to these being openly accessible, but this is dependent on publisher policy and agreements you may have entered into.

Some publishers allow a version to be made available as immediate open access; others apply embargoes or other restrictions. Please include the publishing agreement as part of your Research UNE submission as it can assist the Research UNE Team to ensure that we comply with the conditions of the agreement.

When entering into an agreement with a publisher it is wise not give away rights unnecessarily.

Publishing agreements are negotiable. Publishers require only your permission to publish an article, not a wholesale transfer of copyright. Hold onto rights to make use of the work in ways that serve your needs and that promote education and research activities.

Open Access

Research UNE supports Open Access Research, providing Open Access versions of UNE Research when able according to publisher guidelines and restrictions stipulated by the author of the Research (including embargo periods).

The majority of publishers do not allow their formatted pdfs to be open access, so it is important for UNE authors to keep other versions of their work and submit them to Research UNE.

Where the Publisher version cannot be open access, Research UNE will use whichever version, closest to the final published version, the publisher or copyright owner permits.

You can check your publisher's position on open access, using Sherpa/Romeo: http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/romeo/index.php

Refer to Open Access to UNE Research Outputs for further information, see the Open Access LibGuide here: http://une.au.libguides.com/research/open

Please select the Open Access type using the drop-down menu, according to the following Open Access types:

 

Open Access types

UNE Green: Includes copies of research outputs that Research UNE can host from the repository. This includes pre and post peer copies of research supplied directly from the UNE Researcher.

Green: Open Access content held in other institutional repositories that Research UNE is linking to externally.

Gold: Open Access content that Research UNE can link externally to, and can host via Research UNE according to Publisher guidelines and CC Licences. Includes articles published in Open Access journals or any outputs freely available online.

Embargoed: Material that can be made available as a UNE Green output at a future date, as stipulated by the publisher. This date will not appear on the record in Research UNE.

None: The output is not available under any open access conditions, now or in the future.

 

Please note that all attachments are carefully checked and publisher requirements are scrutinised by the Research UNE team prior to making any outputs openly accessible. If you believe that a record has mistakenly been made openly accessible, please get in touch with the Research UNE administrators.

Grant number types

By including grant numbers in records, Research UNE can make the research outputs contained in the repository easier to find and the associated data more useful for analysis. It becomes possible to:

●          Quickly find and identify all NHMRC/ARC records in Research UNE

●          Identify research created under a specific grant

●          Collect statistics on the number of grant-funded papers produced at UNE

●          Compare the number of grant-funded papers coming from individual researchers

●          Analyse the output and impact of UNE Research year by year
