UKRI Policy

UKRI Policy

Scope

The new UKRI open access policy applies to:

  1. Peer-reviewed research articles, including reviews and conference papers
  2. 感谢AHRC、BBSRC、EPSRC、ESRC、MRC、NERC、STFC、Innovate UK或Research England的资助
  3. 在2022年4月1日或之后提交(前一项政策适用于在此日期之前提交的出版物.)
  4. Accepted for publication in a journal, conference proceeding with an ISSN, or by a publishing platform

The policy will also apply to book chapters, 2024年1月1日或之后出版的专著和编辑文集,如本页底部所述. We will update our guidance on how to comply with these requirements in due course.

How to comply

在范围内,出版物必须在正式出版日期之前开放获取,并获得CC by许可(除非UKRI已批准使用CC by - nd许可).)无论刊物经由黄金或绿色通道开放获取,均适用上述规定.

UKRI funded researchers are advised to confirm that their chosen journal is compliant 投稿前请通过以下途径之一与我们联系,讨论任何问题.

Route 1

在符合UKRI技术要求的期刊或出版平台上发表,并使记录版本根据CC BY许可证(或CC BY- nd)立即开放访问 approved by UKRI).

You can comply via this route when publishing in a fully open access journal, a subscription journal included in one of our transformative agreements 或订阅经Jisc批准的符合研究部门要求的期刊 requirements for transition to open access.

Route 2

在订阅期刊上发表(不包括在变革性协议中),并使作者接受的手稿(AAM)在最终出版日期前在兼容的存储库中开放访问,并根据CC by授权. 在AAM出版和开放获取之间不允许有出版者禁运期.

为了通过这一途径促进合规,所有提交的文件必须在确认信和随附的求职信中包括以下声明: For the purpose of open access, 作者申请了知识共享署名(CC BY)许可[在UKRI允许的情况下], “开放政府许可”或“知识共享署名无衍生品(CC BY-ND)许可”可用于出现的任何作者接受手稿版本.

UKRI资助的作者不应该签署与他们的资助要求相冲突的出版合同.e.requiring an embargo period or  licence other than CC BY for the AAM). 在这种情况下,作者可能希望请求豁免黄金开放获取的费用(因为不能使用UKRI的整体拨款来支付)或请求修改冲突的条款.

UKRI open access funds

The university's UKRI block grant can be used to pay open access charges for publishing in fully open access journals and in journals that meet sector requirements for transformative journals (as defined by Jisc). Tools to allow authors to identify such journals are in development. 

The UKRI block grant cannot 用于资助不符合Jisc对变型期刊或过渡性协议要求的订阅期刊的开放获取. 打算在这类期刊上发表文章的作者需要找到另一种资金来源来支付任何开放获取的出版费用. 

请注意,当在我们的变型协议之一的订阅期刊上发表时,合规的开放获取将不会产生额外的成本.

Data access statement

You must include a data access statement in your article, even where there is not data associated with the article or the data are inaccessible. 这告诉读者在哪里与一篇论文相关的基础研究材料是可用的, and how the research materials can be accessed. The statement can include links to the dataset, where applicable and appropriate
