Sherpa/Romeo is a site which lists Journal and Publisher copyright policies.

Open Access

Open Access (OA) is a worldwide 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 by the author. 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 digital accessibility.

Refer to the Open Access and Scholarly Publications Guide to find further useful OA resources and evaluation tools.

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

General Australian collections


Trove is a one search discovery service focused on Australia and Australians, and provides integrated access to approximately 90 million items from a range of the National Library's collaborative services and from elsewhere.

You can find information in Trove about resources collected by Australia's memory institutions, such as:

  • books, theses, reports, research articles, raw data sets, book chapters, conference proceedings as well as papers and records
  • maps and audio-visual materials including photographs, artworks, postcards, videos, musical sound, sheet music and sound recordings of interview
  • the full-text of major Australian newspapers, from 1803 to 1954
  • copies of selected Australian websites which may no longer be available online or in their original form
  • people and organisations

International Collections


Using the WorldCat search you can find items in libraries near you. 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.
