How to add your research
Copyright clearance for your research
You need only add your research to the Research Outputs Management Systems (ROMS). The Research Bank (RB) team in the Library receive input for RB from the Research Outputs Management Sytems (ROMS) which is managed by the Unitec Research Office. ROMS can be found here http://unitec.roms.intuto.com
We also work with Unitec's Research Office to obtain research outputs (chiefly post graduate and masters theses).
While theses, conference papers, posters and working papers are normally acceptable in their final format, copyright is often an issue when it comes to making journal articles openly accessible via the web. In the vast majority of cases, copyright over an article is transferred to the journal publisher. Despite this, most journal publishers do allow authors to make their work open-access, albeit with some restrictions on the format of the paper you use.
Usually, publishers do not allow authors to post the final, published version of a paper on the Internet. However, the majority of large publishers do allow you to use your final draft version of the paper, which should be identical in content to the published version, although the formatting may be quite different. In almost all cases where the use of the final draft is permitted, the publisher also insists on the inclusion of a set phrase that identifies the definitive version of the paper as their own, together with a link to their authorised version.
An explanation of how the preprint, postprint and published formats fit into the publishing process can be found in the Versions Toolkit document that is linked in the sidebar.
