UniSC Research Bank is an open-access institutional repository. The records of UniSC Research Bank are available on the web to be searched by anyone using the Internet. Where permitted, a link to the full-text publication or to the research output is available for viewing and download.
The purpose of UniSC Research Bank is to showcase and make accessible the research outputs of UniSC researchers to local, national and international communities. This maximises the impact and potential for citation for individual researchers, as well as highlighting the overall research profile of the University.
UniSC Research Bank is complementary to traditional academic publishing processes – not a replacement. UniSC researchers continue to submit their research to peer-review scholarly journals for publication, however where possible also deposit a copy of their published research in UniSC Research Bank.
