Service Update

Last week, the publications team were involved in delivering a range of sessions on Open Access for different Schools as part of Research Week. The sessions gave researchers a chance to refresh their knowledge of Open Access and to ask any questions they had. Feedback from the sessions was very positive and people seemed to find them helpful. If anyone would like to arrange an in-person session for their particular group, please just get in touch.

REF Open Access Compliance

The REF (“Research Excellence Framework”) is a national assessment of university research capabilities, which has a direct impact on the amount of funding we receive. The next REF exercise will be happening in 2021, looking at research produced between 2014 and 2020. As all of our research staff should know, REF2021 has explicit requirements for certain types of research output to be made open access within three months of being accepted for publication – further details of these requirements can be found on our researcher guides.

In the publications team’s latest compliance check (using data extracted on 2018-02-06), RGU as a whole is currently 82% compliant. It is very important that researchers ensure all their outputs are compliantly deposited in OpenAIR by contacting the publications team as soon as possible after acceptance for publication.
