Research Council UK and Open Access

The Council has announced its new policy which states that peer reviewed research papers which result from research that is wholly or partially funded by the Research Councils:
  • must be published in journals which are compliant with Research Council policy on Open Access, and;
  • must include details of the funding that supported the research, and a statement on how the underlying research materials such as data, samples or models can be accessed.
