What is the HEFCE policy on Open Access?
Answered By: Open Access Team Last Updated: Aug 21, 2015 Views: 88
HEFCE have mandated green open access. The policy has two major parts:
a requirement to deposit final peer-reviewed manuscripts of journal articles and conference proceedings into an institutional repository or subject repository within three months of publication; and
- a requirement that papers are made open access as soon as possible after publication and do not exceed the embargo limits (12 months REF Main Panels A & B; 24 months REF Main Panels C & D).
The policy will apply to all manuscripts accepted for publication from 1 April 2016. Click here for more information.
