The past years funders’ policies are playing an important role in the future of scholarly communication affecting the way HEIs publish and disseminate publicly funded research results.
In the UK, both the Finch report and the RCUK policy supported gold open access publishing and introduced a new level of discussion among librarians and repository managers about article processing fees, licenses, funds and whether compliance with these policies will shift the future of institutional repositories.
This one-day event will focus on the major funders’ policies and reports, such as the Finch report, and the RCUK and Wellcome Trust policies. You will learn everything you need to know about policies’ compliance terms, their revisions and creative commons licenses. Furthermore, the issues concerning evaluation of research outputs, such as the Research Excellence Framework (REF) and the future of institutional repositories will be widely addressed.
