Creo is the institutional repository of SAE Institute Australia. Its purpose is to collect, preserve, and provide perpetual access to SAE Australasia's research, scholarship, creative works, and associated academic intellectual property.

What is the purpose and benefit of having an institutional repository?

  • It provides 24/7 online access to SAE Institute Australasia’s intellectual outputs to local and global communities.
  • It increases the global visibility of SAE Institute Australasia’s intellectual outputs on Google, Google Scholar and other search engines.
  • It provides a location from which researchers, authors and creators may publish and make accessible their scholarly and creative works.
  • It assists in meeting requirements mandated by many funding agencies around sponsored works and open-access archiving.
  • It provides a location for the storage and sharing of learning and teaching materials used at SAE.

Who can contribute content to Creo?

Current and former SAE students, staff, and creative professionals affiliated with SAE can submit works for publication to the repository.

What material does Creo hold, and what can be deposited?

The current collection development priorities for Creo are:

  • Faculty scholarly and creative works, including articles, lectures, presentations and performances, grey literature, books, book chapters, etc.;
  • student scholarly and creative works, including project exemplar works and works completed and performed outside of the Institute;
  • educational materials created for use within SAE courses;
  • conference proceedings, special presentations, including master classes hosted, sponsored or affiliated with SAE Institute Australasia.

What rights do I give to SAE when I deposit materials in Creo?

For submissions from current students and staff, works stored within and made available by SAE Institute Australia via Creo are governed by SAE Australia's Intellectual Property Policy.

For alumni, previous staff, and affiliated creative professionals, as part of the deposit (submission) process, you, the author or creator, agree to grant SAE Institute Australia non-exclusive rights to make the material available permanently online at no charge and with no access restrictions, and the right to alter the format of the deposited work if deemed necessary for preservation and enduring accessibility. In the case of works for which the publisher holds the copyright, it is the responsibility of the contributor to obtain permission from the publisher to deposit the work.

Who owns the copyright to materials in Creo?
