Act on Acceptance: HEFCE policy comes into effect
The much anticipated HEFCE open access policy came into effect on 1st April and researchers wishing to submit their work to the next REF must now deposit the final peer reviewed copy of any article or conference paper (with an ISSN) into NECTAR as soon as possible after it has been accepted for publication.
This leaflet describes the three simple steps that you should follow to ensure your work is not excluded from the next REF.
We are also very happy to come and talk about these to your research group or School Research and Enterprise Committee. If you would like us to do this then just get in touch.
