Research Councils UK (RCUK) has today (6 March 2013) published the latest version of its guidance for its revised Policy on Open Access, which comes in to effect on 1 April 2013.

 

This latest version draws the policy and the guidance together into one document and aims to give researchers, research organisations as well as publishers further clarity on the implementation of the policy.

 

RCUK is keen to continue to engage with its stakeholders on the development of the guidance, so is inviting organisations to provide further input to this version where aspects may still not be clear. RCUK will then revise the guidance further to take into account these clarifications.
