Program Overview

We are proud of the research work undertaken by staff and students of Griffith College. Griffith Open offers an opportunity to showcase the breadth and depth of this research.

Through providing a central archive and record of research, we aim to make content as accessible as possible. Institutional repositories ensure a wide dissemination of the work produced, maximize impact and contribute to the growing body of research literature that is now freely available online.
