5 weeks until new UKRI open access policy – key points about the gold 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 1 is to go for gold.

Gold route key points:

  • The gold route may well involve paying an APC (article processing charge). See our full guide in the link below for ways the Library Service can help support that cost.
  • Using the gold route means your work will be publicly available immediately, and you will be able to apply a CC-BY licence.

Any questions?

Your Information Specialist is here to help. Read the Library’s guide on the new UKRI open access policy.
