Latest Open Access requirements

HEFCE has a new policy for Open Access in the next Research Excellence Framework (REF). In order to be eligible for the next REF the new policy requires peer-reviewed articles and conference proceedings to be available through an institutional repository when they are accepted for publication.

See: more about HEFCE’s OA Policy and the Policy document

Make sure your work can meet REF requirements by entering the details of your publications into Pure and at the same time uploading your Accepted Manuscript in Pure.

The Library will continue to advise on other funders’ policies and to pay eligible Open Access costs for RCUK and Wellcome Trust-funded papers.
