Are you open?

2 June 2016

It is two months since the start of the REF Open Access Policy.

Flaxman Gallery All researchers should now be in the habit of uploading manuscript versions of articles and conference papers to UCL's Research Publications Service (RPS). Papers that are not uploaded within three months of publication cannot be submitted to the next REF.

The Open Access Team and the Office of the Vice-Provost (Research) are reporting to Deans of Faculty, and departments, on compliance. If you are not sure how to upload your papers, check the guide here or ask the Open Access Team for advice.
