We have one more open access briefing this term – it’s on Friday 25th November 12-1pm in the SURF Room, Fulton House, Singleton Park Campus. Book your place here!
All Swansea University researchers need to ensure their publications comply with the REF Open Access policy, the institutional policy and any funder policies. Not sure what you need to do? Come along and find out!
We will give an overview of the new Open Access policy for the next REF – this policy places the responsibility on authors to “deposit their work and consider their open access options” but the Library Research Support Team can help with this. As well as widening readership beyond those who can afford expensive journal subscriptions, open access is being shown to boost citations and impact so authors should benefit from the extra effort required by these funder policies.
Come along to find out:
– what needs to be done on RIS when you have an output accepted for publication
– the pros and cons of the different options for making outputs open access, including potential costs and sources of funding.
– how the Library Research Support team can help you
The session will be led by Sam Oakley, Research Librarian (firstname.lastname@example.org)
