Highly commended UCL Open Access Guide now available

11 December 2013

UCL's new Open Access (OA) Guide is now available on the UCL Library Services website.

UCL Open Access

The guide, launched at the recent UCL OA Forum, has been praised as a clear, straightforward introduction to OA for all researchers, including those whose funding agencies require their outputs to be made open access.

Professor David Price, UCL Vice-Provost (Research), said: "I commend this document to all UCL authors. Open access will be a key element of 'REF2020', and the sooner academic colleagues learn how to take advantage of UCL's investment in open access, the sooner we will start to benefit from the enhanced impact that open access can generate."

UCL provides OA funding and support for all researchers. The UCL OA Team aims to make open access effortless for authors; in the Guide, you will find researchers calling them "helpful, proactive and responsive" and "fab"!

Research Council and Wellcome Trust-funded authors must contact the team as a priority to arrange OA for their papers, but all authors are encouraged to take advantage of OA and can find more information via the links below.
