University Open Access Fund
The published findings of RCUK funded research will be eligible for payment of an article processing charge (APC), to achieve Open Access at the point of publication.
Other research is eligible for payment of an APC where it is considered to be a strong contender for inclusion in the post-2014 REF. Eligibility is to be decided by Departmental Research Leads or Unit of Assessment Leads by the operational processes identified in this workflow.
You can use our Open Access decision tool to help identify what steps to take.
