Open Access and the next REF... 5 Simple Steps to Compliance

Are you an academic or a Post Grad student at the University of Northampton?

Had an article accepted for publication? Busy writing up your article to submit to a journal? Make sure that your article doesn't become ineligible due to a simple administrative oversight.

In order to be eligible for submission in the next REF (Research Excellence Framework) all journal articles and conference proceedings that were accepted for publication from the 1st of April must be deposited in NECTAR as soon as they are accepted, and no later than three months from the date of acceptance.

Dawn Hibbert, Head of Research Support will take you through HEFCE's (Higher Education Funding Council for England) Open Access Policy and 5 steps that have been designed to ensure that your research outputs meet HEFCE's requirements.

It is important that all journal articles and conference proceedings (not just those to be submitted to the REF) meet these requirements, or it will count against the Universtiy in the next REF.
