The University has some funds available to help staff and research students, whose work has been funded from public funds, to pay for Open Access to articles that have been accepted for publication before 31st March 2013.
- Did public funding contribute to the work behind an article you have written? For example did you have a grant from a Research Council or the Chief Scientist’s Office?
- Does the funder, for example the Research Council, mandate open access?
- Does the publisher of your article say you cannot make it publicly available free of charge? If you are not sure we can check for you.
If you have an article that fits these criteria we may be able to cover the open access cost to allow the article to be made freely available.
Not sure what all this means? Got questions? Please do contact us.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have an urgent publication deadline or press release please use the ’! ‘ high importance flag on your email and we will prioritise your enquiry.
