  • There is some division over the issue of whether rights of re-use are needed now, or will develop once ‘access’ has been firmly established.Here is the definition of "open access" from the BOAI: "By 'open access' to this literature, 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 other than those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself. The only constraint on reproduction and distribution, and 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."
  • These funders are just some of those which have an open access requirement built into their funding contracts. Some require deposit in a repository, some require publishing in an open access journal. These are mostly European and UK funders… there are many others outside of the UK which have similar open access requirements attached to any funding they provide, with varying degrees of reporting enforcement in place.
  • Writing… or thinking of writing an article for a particular journal. Author needs to know options (possibly before completing writing article), and if funding is available (before submission).Fund administrators need to know expected spending of funding before an invoice/request for payment arrives.If an author has not gone through the system prior to article being accepted, they will not have access to the central funding pot. This would be unfair to other authors and could be seen as ‘jumping the queue’. It also keeps the message the same for all. WE can commit funding to be made available for you whilst the fund remains. We cannot just pay immediately upon request when the funding is finite.
  • Purposes:- - makes sure we can keep money available to cover the expected cost. - starts the process of recording how the RCUK fund is spent for reporting purposes - starts the process for making sure that if we are paying publishers, we can then easily move the published version into DRO for future REF purposes.
