Supplementary materials such as multimedia and spreadsheets that are part of your research output, but not the thesis component, can be additionally uploaded as separate files during the deposit process. Ensure you indicate if these need to be restricted.

If a file is larger than 100MB please supply them to the Minerva Access team via The University of Melbourne’s supported file sharing and cloud storage platform, CloudStor.

University Staff Submission via Minerva Elements

University staff wanting to make research outputs available from Minerva Access must upload their files in Elements, the University's research outputs management system. Elements is fully integrated with Minerva Access. Staff can upload files to Elements themselves or send through any files via this ServiceNow form or via email and the Research Outputs team will deposit this on your behalf.

For more information on making your research openly available in Minerva Access, see our Help pages.

For more information on meeting the requirements for the ARC and NHMRC Open Access policies see the Open Access & Compliance with Funder Mandates pages.

Students depositing theses must still deposit via Minerva Access, not via Elements.
