If you’re applying for a research grant in 2018, the Library can help make the process easier. Contact us for assistance with data management, measuring your research impact and complying with Open Access mandates.
When it comes to applying for grants, no one knows more about your research project than you. It’s not an easy process. When your application asks for evidence of research quality and impact, data management and compliance with open access mandates, the Library is here with services and support.
We can help you with:
Demonstrating evidence of research quality and impact
We can provide a Research Impact Report, containing a metric analysis of your research publications within the scope of the grant application. We can also demonstrate the tools available to collect research metric data and assist in using the data in your application. Learn more about measuring research impact with our helpful online guide.
Many organisations—including the Australian Research Council (ARC)—require you to address data management and planning as part of the grant application process and funding rules. We can provide advice and support on issues of ownership, storage, data description, data sharing, reuse and disposal. Get started with our Research Data Management Toolkit.
Open Access Funder Mandates – depositing manuscript and metadata in ACU’s Research Bank
If you receive a research grant, you are often required to deposit a version of your publication in an Open Access institutional repository within twelve months of publication. As a researcher at ACU, you can deposit Open Access versions of your publications in ACU’s Institutional Repository, Research Bank. The Library manages Research Bank and can provide advice and support. Visit our online Open Access guide to learn more.
Creating and managing your Open Researcher and Contributor iD (ORCID)
Funding bodies including the Australian Research Council and the National Health and Medical Research Council are requesting ORCID iDs from applicants to improve the efficiency of grant submission and management. We can help you to register for an ORCID iD and populate your ORCID record. Our online guide to ORCID contains tips and further information.
