What are some implications of Open Access mandates for researchers? Self-archive publications in an institutional repository Deposit citation metadata in the institutional repository in the first instance And when available, deposit appropriate full-text version in institutional repository
Some questions that may arise 1: Where will I publish my research? There is no restriction on where you publish If I choose to publish in a gold OA journal how will I fund this? Neither mandate refers to payments for APCs, but some grant allocations may be used
Some questions that may arise 2: If I choose to publish in a journal that requires a subscription, what provisions does the publisher make in order for me to comply with my funders’ open access policy? Some journals allow gold open access or deposit of post print Where does my funder require that I deposit my publication? OA Institutional Repository
If you are not able to comply because: Publisher does not allow deposit of appropriate version (published or post-print) Copyright agreement doesn’t allow publication to be made available within 12 months Publisher never allows the publication to be made available Intellectual Property reasons Cultural sensitivities Give an explanation with the reason/s in the final report to the funding body.
