Open access for the next REF

There is an open access policy for the next Research Excellence Framework. From April 2016, journal articles and conference papers must be deposited in an open access repository, ideally within 3 months of acceptance (but certainly no later than 3 months after first online publication). From April 2017, papers must be deposited within 3 months of acceptance.

UCL authors must deposit all publications in our institutional repository, UCL Discovery. Support is available from UCL's Open Access Team, and you can watch our video for an introduction to the policy.
