EPSRC reminder on open access

EPSRC has published a reminder to grant holders that published research arising from EPSRC funding must be made openly accessible by any available route.

"The current EPSRC policy requires that all published research articles arising from EPSRC-sponsored research, and which were submitted for publication on or after 1 September 2011, must become available on an Open Access basis through any appropriate route."

There is advice to St Anderws researchere on our Library web pages on how to comply with the EPSRC and other RCUK open access policies.

The EPSRC reminder also indicates that the RCUK policy will be further developed in the context of advice from a UK Government Working Group on Expanding Access. We will update our advice as necessary when new details are available.
