The accredited institutional repository of Western Sydney University, ResearchDirect, collects, preserves, and showcases the intellectual output of staff and students for a global audience. For this reason, researchers are encouraged to deposit their work in ResearchDirect in the first instance.

If you work in a field where depositing in a subject repository is preferred, you can check whether it is an accredited repository registered in OpenDOAR, a quality-assured global directory of academic open access repositories.

If you are looking for somewhere to deposit your research data, the Researcher Dashboard provides instructions on obtaining Western research data storage. The 'Manage' tab enables researchers to describe a dataset to ensure the University is aware that the data exists and must be managed. The 'Publish and Share' tab enables the researcher to progress an archival dataset record to publication in Research Direct and inclusion in Research Data Australia. The Core Trust Seal site also lists data repositories that have been certified as trustworthy. There are several directories that include well-respected and long-established data repositories, such as re3data.org, the FAIRsharing Databases catalogue, and Data repositories listed in the Open Access Directory (OAD).
