Pure offers the option to record the different stages of publication for an article. More than one date can be added and we encourage you to enter all the dates you have. In particular from 1st April 2016 HEFCE’s Open Access Policy for the next REF requires you to deposit the accepted manuscript version of all journal articles in a subject of institutional repository within 3 months of publication. It is particularly important therefore that the accepted publication date of your article is recorded on the Pure record so we can identify the records that the policy applies to.

See our blog for detailed guidelines on the different publication states in Pure and how to add them to your record.
