Open access policies and mandates are advocated by many universities around the world to make scholarly data and outputs, including theses, dissertations, and research data freely available to the public. This paper presents the current status of open-access electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs), research data repositories and Research Management Information System (RIMS) at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore, and outlines future work to promote the deposit and sharing of research related outputs and information.
