We had the first briefing today on the new HEFCE open access policy that will govern the post-2014 REF submissions. Lots of good questions and comments! We will be running more sessions over the coming months (years?) but the key information is available here:
- HEFCE’s policy and their comprehensive FAQs
- Swansea University’s Guidance for Researchers (PDF)
- Guide to using Swansea University’s RIS and Cronfa systems (PDF)
- Information on central funds available to pay APCs for RCUK-funded work only.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like us to come and speak with any gatherings of researchers. The next open-to-all session on March 18th is almost fully booked but we will announce more dates soon.
