Open Access pilot launched at the Royal Free: UCLP Open Access – a UCL Discovery service

Mar 23, 2015 14:33PM

UCLP Open Access means making research publications from UCL Partners freely available online via UCL Discovery. 

Open access maximises the dissemination and visibility of research worldwide. It makes authors’ work accessible to all fellow researchers, and to society as a whole. There are no payment barriers for readers of open access publications, so everyone can read them free of charge.

The new UCLP Open Access service is being piloted at the Royal Free: Royal Free Hospital Library staff will be supporting staff at the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust in making all types of research outputs open access – including articles, proceedings, book chapters, working papers and more: all research outputs will be eligible to be deposited in UCL Discovery, UCL’s and partners’ Open Access repository, copyright permitting. All research outputs that are deposited will also be available via Google searches since Discovery is indexed by Google.

The pilot will test and finetune procedures, with a gradual roll-out of the functioning service more widely within UCL Partners. Royal Free London NHS Trust researchers are invited to arrange submission of their research outputs upon acceptance for publication. Further information.
