All recipients of a Royal Society award are encouraged to publish peer-reviewed accepted articles and conference proceedings in open access journals
Deposit and embargo
As a minimum, award holders are expected to follow green routes for open access by publishing in a journal which allows deposit of the accepted manuscript version in an institutional or subject repository with no embargo period on access.
The Society’s preference is for the version of record of peer-reviewed publications to be freely accessible and re-useable on publication to ensure the widest reach and maximum benefit to the scientific community.
Paying for Royal Society publications
The Royal Society will allow the use of funding to cover fair and reasonable article processing charges (APCs) for articles published in journals or platforms with immediate open access under CC BY licence.
