REF – OPEN ACCESS
Each Unit of Assessment will need to submit a section on “open research”, detailing the submitting unit’s open access strategy, including where this goes above and beyond the REF open access policy requirements, and wider activity to encourage the effective sharing and managment of research data.
To assist us in meeting this criteria, please ensure that all research outputs that are accepted for publication are uploaded to NECTAR as soon as they have been accepted
Note – copyright will be checked, and all publisher’s policies will be respected. What can be made open, will be!
Note – by depositing your work in NECTAR this does not make your work automatically open access.
If you have any questions about embargo periods or credibility of journals that you are looking to publish in please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Open Access Requirements for all journal articles and conference proceedings accepted for publication from the 1st of April 2016 are:
Deposit – within 3 months of acceptance
Embargo Periods – 12 months – Panel A and B (STEM), 24 Months Panel C and D
