For anyone receiving UKRI funding, a new policy will apply for peer-reviewed research articles submitted for publication from 1 April 2022.
Read the full policy now to ensure you know what your responsibilities are.
Did you know?
The policy also covers your research data.
- UKRI requires all research articles to include a Data Access Statement (also known as a Data Availability Statement), even where there are no data associated with the article or the data are inaccessible.
- This statement informs readers where the underlying research materials associated with a paper are available, and how the research materials can be accessed. The statement can include links to the dataset, where applicable and appropriate. Where there are reasons to protect access to the data, for example commercial confidentiality or sensitivities around data derived from potentially identifiable human participants, these should be included in the statement.
