Rewind: Open Access Week 2016 – HEFCE v RCUK

HEFCE v RCUK - OriginalToday’s rewind is the second poster created for Open Access Week 2016. This poster looks at the HEFCE and RCUK open access policies and what you, the researcher, needs to do in order to comply with them. As usual, click the poster to see it at full size.

HEFCE is the Higher Education Funding Council for England, and introduced an open access policy for complying with the post-2014 REF (Research Excellence Framework) in April 2016.

RCUK is the strategic partnership of the UK’s seven Research Councils. Researchers in receipt of a grant from one of the councils must comply with the open access policy.
