4 weeks until new UKRI open access policy – key points about the green route
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 permits two routes to compliant OA (open access) publishing. Route 2 is to go green.
Green route key points:
- The AAM (author accepted manuscript) must be made publicly available on CERES at the same time as the version of record (publisher branded version). No embargo is permitted.
- You must include a sentence of prescribed text in your acknowledgements and any cover letter accompanying the submission. This text reads: ‘For the purpose of open access, the author has applied a Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) licence (where permitted by UKRI, ‘Open Government Licence’ or ‘Creative Commons Attribution No-derivatives (CC BY-ND) licence’ may be stated instead) to any Author Accepted Manuscript version arising’.
- Depending on where you choose to publish, you may need to negotiate with the publisher to get permission to include the text in the AAM and publish it with no embargo. Some publishers do not impose an embargo (e.g. IEEE, AIAA, Emerald).
Your Research Information Specialist is here to help. See the Library’s guide on the UKRI open access policy.
