Bond Research Goes Global
Posted by Peta Hopkins on November 24, 2006
The Bond University institutional repository was officially launched this week by the Vice Chancellor, Professor Robert Stable. epublications @ Bond is an archive of research output by academics and students from Bond.
The launch was well attended with visitors from the University of Queensland, several local high schools and academics and higher degree students from across campus.
The repository provides open access to theses, pre-prints and post-prints of journal articles, conference papers and book chapters, and is indexed by Google, Yahoo and many other search engines.
The first paper was uploaded in March 2006 and now there are over 250 papers and full text downloads in excess of 800 per week. The repository is promoting Bond research around the World.
Librarians Yvonne Auld and Antoinette Cass have been busy uploading research papers to the repository, while Christine Potter has built the thesis collection.
New directions for the repository will see the establishment of a number of open access journals. Planning is currently in place to move several of the Law journals and Spreadsheets in Education to the repository.
