Open Access Research: Act On Acceptance

About Act on Acceptance

From 1st April 2018, HEFCE mandates that journal articles and conference papers need to be deposited within 90 days of acceptance in order to be submitted for the next REF.

This change will impact on our ability to remind authors about pending items awaiting deposit and means that some authors will have to deposit items without knowing full publication details for their work. The Open Research Team have made changes to the deposit process in preparation for this and we now encourage authors to deposit upon acceptance of their manuscript.
