Oxford University policy: summary
Open access at the University of Oxford is overseen by the Open Access Steering Group, which is accountable to the Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Research) and Research and Innovation Committee.
On 20 October 2022, the updated University of Oxford Open Access Publications Policy was approved by the Research and Innovation Committee. It reaffirms that the University’s preferred route to open access is the self-archiving ('green') route and brings the policy in line with funder open access policies.
The policy also sets out principles for managing open access block grants and covers all forms of publications including journal articles, conference papers, reports, books, book sections and chapters, and working and discussion papers.
