Benefits of uploading your research
- You pass on what you’ve learned
- You can be found by those with an interest in your field
- Sector and iwi knowledge is retained in one place – not scattered or lost!
What forms of research we accept
We accept all forms of research, evaluations, reports, studies, dissertations, conference papers, case studies, theses, and documentation including song, poetry, waiata, whakaari, whakairo, korero and multimedia/digital files. We accept research that has not been peer-reviewed, and research that is mid-way to completion.
All uploaded documents are subject to the website’s Terms and conditions.
You can only upload research as a PDF file
The reasons we only allow PDFs include:
- some file formats carry malicious coding that can cause security problems
- no-one can make deliberate or accidental changes after they download your research
- files can be opened by virtually everyone, which is not the case with proprietary formats.
Most types of files can easily be converted to PDF. For instructions see Creating Accessible PDFs, from the University of Michigan.
We can help if you are having problems with this, or if your file size exceeds 3MB.
