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 and AUT’s institutional research repository.
Knowledge exists for the benefit of the communities from which it comes. We believe in openness, sharing and toll-free access to research. We support the development of a sustainable and equitable commons.
Tuwhera is a te reo Māori word with multiple meanings: be open, opening up. We chose the name in collaboration with Māori staff from Te Ara Poutama at AUT to acknowledge parallels with, and to honour Māori reciprocal concepts and ideals such as ako (learning/teaching), awhi (to cherish), manaaki (hospitality, support, care) and mana tangata (empowerment, humanity).
Tuwhera utilizes open-source (non-proprietary) publishing and repository platforms, is free of article processing charges (pay to publish) or other fees, supports multiple modes of author ownership and IP, and applies Creative Commons licenses to facilitate fair access and reuse.
