Open Access Week 19th to 25th October 2015

Drop in sessions in the SCR between 12 and 2pm on either Monday 19th or Wednesday 21st October.

International Open Access LogoInternational Open Access week is an opportunity to promote the benefits of Open Access – the unrestricted, online access to the published findings of research.

HEFCE’s policy on Open Access for the next REF will require that the final author version of all journal articles and conference proceedings  be deposited in a repository upon acceptance for publication.

This policy will apply to all journal articles and conference proceedings accepted for publication after 1st April 2016 and any outputs which do not meet this requirement may not be eligible for submission to the REF.

It is therefore important that researchers are familiar with HEFCE’s requirements and are in the habit of archiving the final author version in CReaTE as an integral part of the research process.
