Open Access publishing for Aston authors: Funder OA compliance

Background

Funder requirements: HE funding bodies, notably HEFCEResearch Councils UK, the European Commission, and the Wellcome Trust & other members of COAF, now mandate for OA publication of journal articles and conference papers. 

  • Note: There are developing compliance requirements also in relation to 'Research Data Management' (RDM) - see the RDM LibGuide for detailed information on this aspect.
