The UTAS Open Access Repository (OAR) has migrated to the figshare platform and is integrated with the new research management platform, Elements.
All ERA eligible research outputs, HDR theses and unpublished grey scholarly literature previously discoverable in Open Access Repository and our former OAR platform Open Access Repository, will be discoverable in the new integrated Elements/ figshare Platform.
