Researcher Support Library Services: Open Scholarship & Impact

Publishing of research outputs is in a state of change with funders, institutions and authors working towards new approaches to the practice of Open Scholarship which has implications for choosing where to publish, considering transfer of copyright to publishers and using digital tools to connect outputs with authors, institutions and funders in order to track impact and measure research.  

University policy on Open Access

The University requires researchers to create a record for all their University affiliated research outputs and deposit an appropriate version of each publication via their Pure profile. To align with the REF 2021 OA policy, all journal articles and conference papers must be deposited within 90 days of the date of acceptance.
