RRDP: Open Access for research publications: what you need to know

November 2, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

For PhD students (All – year 2 & 3)

Find out what open access is, why it is important for research and what funders and universities require of you. Learn about the different open access routes including open access repositories and publishers’ open access options. We will include advice on evaluating and selecting these. The focus will be on open access for journal articles, which is well established and is a key requirement of funder policies. We will also discuss open access for theses and briefly introduce you to some initiatives for open access monographs. Open access is a worldwide movement and this session will note key developments in the UK and in other countries.
