|Step 1: Check your funder's policy - Economic and Social Research Council
For all grants it is mandatory, at the earliest opportunity, to:
- offer any data resulting from an ESRC award to the UK Data Archive.
- deposit a copy of any resultant articles published in journals or conference proceedings, in the ESRC research catalogue.
- wherever possible, deposit the bibliographical metadata relating to such articles, including a link to the publisher's website, at or around the time of publication, in the ESRC Social Sciences repository (ESRC Society Today).
Which version of the article should be deposited depends upon publishers' agreements with their authors.
Award holders are also encouraged to submit copies of resultant publications and/or associated metadata with institutional and other appropriate repositories.
ESRC's guidance is that authors choose where to place their research and that it is for author's institutions to decide whether they are prepared to use funds from full economic costs to pay any publishing fees, where the predicted direct costs of dissemination of research outputs will be incurred during the period of the grant. Where these costs are likely to occur after the grant has ended, they should be included in the indirect costs of the Research Organisation.
