Are you REF Open Access ready?

To be OA eligible for the REF, articles and conference papers within journals, that are accepted after 1st April 2016, must have the author's accepted manuscript deposited into Pure within 3 months of the date of acceptance. The Research Support Team provides support to enable outputs to gain increased visibility and discoverability via OA and to achieve REF OA eligibility.
