The University of Oxford’s service to support Open Access was launched on 1 October. This new service has been designed to enable researchers to make their publications eligible for the next Research Excellence Framework (REF).
The instruction to researchers is to ‘Act on acceptance’, in other words when their article or conference paper is accepted for publication. This has been a major collaboration between the Bodleian and Research Services. Full details and the new ‘Act on acceptance’ button for deposit into the Oxford University Research Archive (ORA) via Symplectic is available.
