Open Access

Open Access (OA) is a movement to make available online research and scholarly material for the greater benefit of all, without cost, to enhance learning and scholarly communication.

All OA material is made available with the consent of the publisher and copyright is retained. The main reason authors make their articles openly accessible is to maximize their research impact and this is achieved by placing material in institutional repositories which, like Bond's, are indexed by Google and other major search engines.

It is in the spirit of OA that e-publications@ bond exists, to enable faculty, staff and researchers to contribute digital materials for long-term preservation and world-wide electronic accessibility.

New contributions from our academic staff are always welcome - please contact the for further information.

International Collections


WorldCat is the world's largest network of library content and services. You can search for popular books, music CDs and videos-all of the physical items you're used to getting from libraries. You can also discover many new kinds of digital content, such as downloadable audiobooks. You may also find article citations with links to their full text; authoritative research materials, such as documents and photos of local or historic significance; and digital versions of rare items that aren't available to the public. Because WorldCat libraries serve diverse communities in dozens of countries, resources are available in many languages. Many digital repositories from institutions all over the world have also made their content available on WorldCat including e-publications@bond.
