HEFCE announces new open access policy
HEFCE have set out their open access policy for the post-2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF). To be eligible for REF submission, the author’s final manuscript of journal articles and conference proceedings must have been deposited in an institutional or subject repository on acceptance for publication.
We’ll be adding further advice to these pages soon, but please contact us in the meantime if you have any questions. HEFCE’s announcement can be viewed on the HEFCE website.
