University staff wanting to make research publications available from Minerva Access must deposit via Minerva Elements, the University publications system. Elements is fully integrated with Minerva Access.  

For more information on depositing via Minerva Elements see RIC's Research Publications site.

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.
