The ARC has introduced a new open access policy for ARC funded research
which takes effect from 1 January 2013. According to this new policy the
ARC requires that any publications arising from an ARC supported research
project must be deposited into an open access institutional repository
within a twelve (12) month period from the date of publication.

The ARC understands that some researchers may not be able to meet the new
requirements initially because of current legal or contractual obligations.
In these cases, Final Reports must provide reasons why publications derived
from a Project, Award, or Fellowship have not been deposited in an open
access institutional repository within the twelve month period. The policy
will be incorporated into all new Funding Rules and Agreements released
after 1 January 2013. It will not be applied retrospectively to
pre-existing Funding Rules and Agreements.
