From 1 April 2022, UKRI-funded authors need to arrange for journal articles to contain a Data Access Statement, and be published immediately Open Access, with no embargo, under a CC BY licence.
It is important that all UKRI-funded authors familiarise themselves with the details of the new policy and understand what they need to do to in order to comply. Advice and full details of the upcoming policy changes are available via the Library website: UKRI’s new Open Access policy, where you can also watch a presentation detailing the upcoming changes.
To help UKRI-funded authors the Library’s Research Services Team are also holding online drop-in clinics from mid-March for anyone with questions about the new policy. Details of upcoming clinics are available via the Library website.
