We are running some general briefings for any Swansea University research staff who wish to learn more about the HEFCW open access policy (and the University’s own Open Access mandate) and what it means for them:
“Getting REF-ready: what you need to do for HEFCW’s new open access policy”
This briefing will give an overview of HEFCW/HEFCE’s open access policy which governs which papers will be eligible for the next post-2014 REF. HEFCE state that “The author is responsible. It is a feature of this policy that it places a responsibility on authors to deposit their work and consider their open access options” so all Swansea University researchers need to be aware of these new requirements. Come along to find out what needs to be done when you have a publication accepted and how we can support you with this.
There are 2 sessions scheduled:
- Fri 6th March 1-2pm SURF Room, Fulton House. Please book here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/open-access-briefing-tickets-15943223611
