Open Access Essentials for Researchers: An introduction | 308 Harrington Building | Wednesday, 29. January 2020

Major research funders and the University have policies requiring open access to research publications and the associated underlying data. The general expectation is that outputs from publicly-funded research projects should be made openly available with as few restrictions as possible. Researchers are expected to produce and manage research findings and data throughout the project with reuse in mind.
The aim of this session is to equip participants with the knowledge necessary to ensure scholarly publications and associated data can be made open access. Attendees will gain an understanding of the mechanisms and benefits of acting open with research outputs, and will understand where to go to get help.
The session will explore the following areas:

Funder and UCLan policy on open sharing
How and when to make your research open access
Good practice in managing Open Access
Institutional Repository (CLoK)

This course is for UCLan staff members and students (interested in making research outputs open access) and is run by the Scholarly Communications Unit – For further information email: openaccess@
