Open Access and the REF – What is the latest and how to keep up to date
Senior Information Specialist, Amanda Russell, from Library and Digital Support will be hosting a workshop regarding new policies surrounding Open Access and what it means for REF 2020.
Open Access aims to make the findings of academic research available electronically, immediately, without charge and free from most copyright or licensing restrictions. Governments and research funders – nationally and internationally – have recently encouraged a move towards open access. The four UK HE funding bodies believe that the outputs of research should be as widely accessible as possible. For this reason a new policy for open access in relation to research assessments after the 2014 REF has been introduced.
