Researcher Support Library Services: Being an Open Researcher

Open Access is a worldwide movement towards online (free to access) peer reviewed content with limited copyright/licencing restrictions.  Open Scholarship continues to broaden to include open data; open monographs; pre-registration of studies; pre-prints; open licences; etc., all of which accelerates greater impact of research in society, reproducibility of research and increased exposure for researchers.

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.
