In the last year Bond’s digital repository e-publications@bond holdings have grown by over 2,000 items to a total exceeding 5,000 (as of 5 January 2011).
As well as being boosted by the 1,366 ERA collection documents uploaded in the first half of 2010, the repository now includes a series of articles by members of the Owen Dixon Society founded at Bond University in 1994 in honour of Australia’s ‘most eminent judge’ Sir Owen Dixon (1886-1972). The Society also celebrates his legacy with an annual black-tie dinner.
A journal edited by School of Sustainable Development Professor Michael Regan entitled the Public Infrastructure Bulletin has also joined the online open access world with a bright new- look e-publications site. Comprising of topical and refereed articles this journal commenced in 2003 and aims to have two issues published each year.
Personal Researcher Pages (PRPs) are also continually growing with a total of 243 created by the end of 2010. A webpage is set up for each academic as a showcase of their research and scholarship and can also feature an area for presenting Expertise, Honours and Awards and a Links list to other relevant sites. PRPs are also accessible via the Faculty or Institute pages if you are browsing by discipline.
All Bond researchers and authors are welcome to have a presence in e-publications@bond with their own Personal Researcher Page whilst adding work to their School series which is kept in perpetuity as a record of the scholarship of the University. Please contact the Repository Coordinator for further information and assistance in depositing material.
We look forward to working with you in 2011.
