The new RCUK Policy on Open Access was implemented on 1st April 2013. We have updated a short two page document which describes the key points in the new policy and gives useful guidance information for St Andrews authors on how to comply. The document: RCUK OA policy briefing is available along with further details from the Library web pages. The full RCUK Policy on Open Access is available from Research Councils UK.
We hope that you will find this guidance useful. It will continue to be updated as new information and processes are developed.
When contacting the Library to check how to comply with the RCUK OA policy, please provide the following details:
Your name, School and email address
Journal and publisher
Article title, manuscript ID or DOI if available
RCUK funder name and external Grant ID acknowledged in the paper
