Drop into the Library and learn more about ORCID
ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor Identifier) is a unique identifier which identifies an author‘s publications and research activity and disambiguates from other authors with similar names. An ORCID enables a researcher to distinguish themselves and their research outputs and travels with a researcher throughout their career and across organisations, institutions and countries. ORCID is being adopted around the world by publishers, research organisations and research funding bodies. This will assist with creating automatic linkage between a researcher and their publications, dataset, grants, patents and other author IDs.
UON has joined the Australian ORCID Consortium and as an ORCID Member Organisation are encouraging UON researchers to register for an ORCID which can then be included in submission of publications to a publisher, in research grants, CVs, web profiles, etc.

Submit a copy of your full text peer-reviewed manuscript (Final Accepted Version) to NOVA before midnight on 25th October 2015 and you will automatically be entered into the draw to win an iPad.

What is Open Access Week?
Open Access provides a way to promote broader access to academic research outputs for scholars, students, professionals and the general public. Open Access is immediate, free of charge, online access to research articles via the internet. Open Access Week is an opportunity to promote the benefits of OA to our research community. One significant way in which authors can participate is to self-archive copies of their peer-reviewed manuscripts (Final Accepted Version) into the University’s institutional repository, NOVA. A large number of UoN staff and RHD students are currently actively archiving copies of their journal articles and conference papers and making these available online via open access in NOVA. The Library would like to encourage more UoN authors to self-archive their work and to learn more about the benefits of open access.
Please submit your peer-reviewed manuscripts (Final Accepted Version) to: firstname.lastname@example.org
What should I send to NOVA?,
Send a copy of your peer-reviewed manuscript (Final Accepted version) for each/any of your publications. Please note: this is not the publisher’s PDF version of your work.
How do I send a copy of my manuscript (final accepted version) to NOVA?
Send a copy of the full-text of your journal or conference publication, etc via email to email@example.com
Can I send the publisher version of my work?
A large number of academic publishers, as the copyright owner, allow the author’s peer-reviewed manuscript (Final Accepted Version) to be archived in the university’s institutional repository; however a much smaller number of publishers allow their publisher version to be archived.
If the publisher version can be made available via Open Access then it will be eligible for our promotion. You can check the publisher copyright policy and self-archiving database, SHERPA/ROMEO, at http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/romeo or alternatively the Library will check this for you. Email your enquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you, as the author, have retained copyright for your publication, then that publication is also eligible for our promotion, i.e. published PDF.
What is the Final Accepted Version of my peer-reviewed manuscript?
The Final Accepted Version incorporates revisions made by authors following the journal / conference’s peer-review process. The author’s final accepted version content mirrors that of the final publication but without the publisher’s typesetting, logo and branding.
I’m not sure about the version of the publication. Who can help me with more information?
The NOVA Team in the Library can answer any questions that you have. Please email email@example.com or call ext.16688 (49 216688). You can also contact your Faculty Librarian.
When can I submit my manuscript version to NOVA?
To be eligible for entry in the iPad draw and to receive a coffee voucher, a copy of your Final Accepted version can be submitted now and up until midnight on Sunday 25th October 2015. Publications received after this date will not be eligible for our coffee promotion or for inclusion in the draw to win an iPad.
When will the draw to win an iPad be held?
The draw for an iPad will take place on Wednesday 28th November 2015. The winner will be contacted via phone or email and the details published in the next Library newsletter.
How do I get my coffee vouchers?
Coffee vouchers can be sent to you via internal mail or can be collected in person from the Library. Please advise when submitting your publications how you would like to receive your coffee voucher. If you are not based at Callaghan Campus we can arrange for you to have a voucher for a cafe at your campus.
