  2. 2. What is Open Access? We mean its free availability on the public internet, permitting any users to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles, crawl them for indexing, pass them as data to software, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without financial, legal, or technical barriers… … the only role for copyright in this domain should be to give authors control over the integrity of their work and the right to be properly acknowledged and cited. (Budapest Open Access Initiative, 2002)
  3. 3. Why is Open Access relevant? • Benefits: • visibility and impact • speeds up the research process • data-mining and text-mining - generating new knowledge from existing findings • author has control of copyright • RCUK OA Policy since 1 April 2013 • Journal publishers changing from traditional subscription model to OA journals/hybrid journals (Gold Open Access) • HEFCE’s OA policy for next REF: • Compulsory to make journal articles and conference proceedings OA in institutional/subject repository within 3 months of acceptance • Outputs should be in readable/searchable format so can be re-used • Should be properly attributed • Likely to increase in more Green OA

LU Funding £10k for OA charges for non-RCUK research RCUK Funding • Applies to journal articles/conference proceedings • Allocated £165k for 2014/2015 (£140k last year) • Prefer immediate OA (Gold) or Green within 6/12 months • Must use CC-BY licence See Open Access Publishing Workflow
