Open Access - Fees & Deposits

The Open Access Team in the Library can help you to make your research open access. 

Not only will this increase the visibility of your work, and your citations, new HEFCE policy for post-2014 REF submissions requires that publications are deposited in an open access repository within 3 months of acceptance in order to be eligible for submission for the next REF. 

It needn’t be difficult:  the Team’s goal is to make open access as straightforward as possible for researchers. 

UCL has a new open access fund that can be used to pay open access fees on behalf of all UCL authors, and a growing number of publisher memberships to simplify the payment process.
