How To Make your papers open access via Institutional Repository

   Open Access FAQ

  • How fast does it take to process my papers?

On average, once the full text has been submitted, the processing by the librarian takes1-2 weeks. The metadata (i.e. citation details) will be publicly available and indexed in Google (and sometimes Google Scholar) soon after. However, for papers that are under embargo, the link to the full-text will only be accessible after the appropriate embargo period has been observed.

  • Can I still deposit papers that are under a publisher’s embargo”?

Yes, you can still submit your accepted manuscript as soon as it is ready. The system allows us to lock the full-text access of a submission by setting an embargo period. Your librarian will also check and ensure that the full text of the manuscript will only be made openly available after the publishers’ embargo period.
