From 1 April any journal article or conference paper that you wish to include in your REF submission must be made available on an open access basis within 3 months of acceptance. Likewise many research funders now require research outputs to be made available open access.
If you’re not sure how to make your publications open access, come along to our Bodleian iSkills: Open Access Oxford briefing on Tuesday 1 March 11.00-12.00. We will be covering:
- What is open access? And what do we mean by the gold route, green route and APCs?
- The HEFCE Open Access policy for the REF and how to make sure that you comply
- How to find out about research council or funder requirements
- How to find out what your publisher will allow
- How to deposit your publications in the ORA repository for the REF and Green route compliance
- How to make your publication open access via the Gold route and how to claim for APCs
- New developments, including ORCID researcher IDs
- Where to get more help
This workshop is only open to current members of Oxford University. It is likely to be very popular so online booking is essential.
Intellectual property and copyright are key concerns for today’s researchers, both in terms of using other people’s output in your work and protecting your own intellectual property. If you’re in the dark about copyright or are not sure how it applies to you, why not attend next week’s iSkills session by Tim Padfield.
Key topics will include:
- What you need to know about using other people’s work (in a range of formats) in your own publications and research or in teaching
- What you need to know when publishing your own work – including protecting your copyright, what to look out for in your contract with your publisher, open access publishing and re-use licences
iSkills: Protecting your work – what you need to know about copyright will take place on Wednesday 4 March 12.00-13.00 in Room 3 at the Taylor Institution >please be sure to book a place online
