Newcomers: An Introduction to Open Access Online

Newcomers: An Introduction to Open Access

Open access (OA) means making research publications freely available so anyone can benefit from reading and using them. Making your research open access is required by many research funders and is also necessary for eligibility for the next REF.  This interactive introduction to Open Access will give you an overview of what open access is and how you can make your work open access to increase visibility. We will also go through the current publishing environment and how open access fits within current funder requirements and the REF. 

The course will be facilitated by the University’s Institutional Repository Manager, and the Scholarly Communications and Research Support Manager, whose role includes supporting researchers in matters relating to scholarly communication, and particularly open access publishing.

Participants are encouraged to view this short video before the session: https://youtu.be/goj-JjbOTFI

Participants will need access to a device they can use for an online interactive quiz using MentiMeter if they would like to take part in the quiz. This can be a desktop/laptop, tablet, or smartphone. The software is accessible via the web, and does not require any downloads in advance.
