AAMRI consultation response on the proposed revisions to NHMRC’s Open Access Policy

5th May, 2021

The NHMRC has proposed changes to its Open Access Policy to help make publicly funded NHMRC research more accessible to end-users.

AAMRI supports the principle of making research outputs more easily available and believes there are significant benefits in moving towards an open access environment.

However, AAMRI’s submission recommends that care needs to be taken when implementing the proposed changes as there are both cost and equity concerns that need to be resolved first. A copy of AAMRI’s response can be found below.
