  1. Retaining Rights to Research Publications Project
  2. Review of Australian Repository Infrastructure
  3. CAUL Statement on Open Scholarship Review
  4. Fair Use Advocacy
  5. Collection and Reporting of APC Information

The F.A.I.R policy statement

The Findable Accessible Interoperable and Reusable (F.A.I.R.) statement is separate from CAUL's Fair, affordable and open access to knowledge program. The F.A.I.R. Statement Steering Group (FSSG) was established in early 2017 to address the implementation of the statement.

The FAIR Access to Australia’s Research website was established to support the FSSG, the website provides information about the policy statement on ongoing action.
