The University of Oxford has submitted a response to UKRI’s recent consultation on its open access policy.
UKRI is reviewing its open access policies for peer-reviewed research articles and academic books that result from research supported by UKRI. Full details of the review and the current timeline are available on the UKRI Open Access Review webpage.
The review seeks to align open access policy across UKRI, including the seven Research Councils, Research England and Innovate UK. It will also help inform OA policy for the post-2021 Research Excellence Framework.
The University’s response was produced following discussion and input from colleagues throughout the Academic Divisions, the Bodleian Libraries, Research Services, and Oxford University Press.
