Open Access publishing for Aston authors: FAQ- Open Access and Research Funders

Open Access and Research Funder Questions

Does my funder require my publications to be made open access?

Funding bodies, notably UK Research & Innovation, the European Commission, the Wellcome Trust and other COAF charities, now mandate for OA publication of journal articles and conference papers. For funder-specific compliance requirements in relation to depositing articles, embargoes and subject repositories click on the relevant funder logo on this page to see a PDF information sheet. You can also check SHERPA/JULIET and SHERPA/FACT to see if a journal's open access policy is compliant with your funder's.
