Program Overview

UNSW Library facilitates the effective dissemination of research by providing infrastructure and guidance in areas related to scholarly communication. The UNSW Library’s journal hosting service supports open access journal publishing initiatives by UNSW researchers. UNSWorks, UNSW’s institutional repository, stores and disseminates a range of research outputs, including ETDs, reports, working papers, conference papers and creative works. A library-supported Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences repository holds several discrete collections, including moving images and audio files. UNSW Library also provides services for data publication and research data management planning. Through these publishing activities, UNSW Library seeks to enable access to scholarly literature and maximise the impact of research produced at UNSW.
