Research Bite 2016 - Open Access Publishing

Do you publish research?  If “yes”, you need to embrace Open Access (OA) publishing – OA publishing is about making research openly & freely available to all users online, which not only benefits research communities & the general public but also individual researchers & their institution. As important, specific HE funder requirements now have to be met in terms of meeting levels of OA compliance and these increased in April 2016 when HEFCE rolled-out their REF benchmarking criteria.   At this session you can learn about HEFCE’s, RCUK’s, Aston’s own and other OA publishing policies, the various obligations they contain and how using PURE, Aston’s research repository, means you & we can achieve OA compliance
