What is the UniSQ RISE Research Repository?
The University of Southern Queensland Repository is a consolidated archive of intellectual output by UniSQ researchers, scholars and other staff. It demonstrates the impact and quality of UniSQ research and scholarship and is used as the primary source of data for reporting about UniSQ research, including ERA.
The aim of a research repository is to preserve the intellectual output of an institution and make that output accessible. For authors, it provides a way to make their research available to the international scholarly community. For readers, it provides free access to international scholarly material.
What can you deposit into the UniSQ RISE Research Repository?
You can deposit any outputs intended for an external audience that you produce through your research, scholarship or professional practice into UniSQ RISE once they’ve been published or presented.
UniSQ researchers are encouraged to deposit any of the following works into UniSQ RISE:
- books and book chapters
- journal, magazine and blog articles and webpages
- conference and workshop presentations, papers, posters, and slides
- research, professional and project reports
- software, patents and trademarks
- creative works, including original works, exhibitions, and performances
- research data records (metadata only).
You don’t need to deposit UniSQ HDR theses or Engineering Honours projects – once they’ve been assessed and received a passing grade, copies are sent to the Library for processing. HDR theses will be added to the UniSQ RISE Research Repository. Engineering Honours projects will be added to the Student Exemplar Repository.
If you’re not sure whether you should contribute a particular output, you can email the Library Repository team for advice.
You can find more information about our copyright and and conditions for deposit in the UniSQ RISE Research Repositories Deposit Licence.
