Open Access isn't always a piece of cake...
...which is why we are here to help!
But it is also why we have developed a separate website providing detailed guidance for Strathclyde staff on some of the biggest issues which are likely to appear bemusing or bewildering to colleagues. Our Open Access @ Strathclyde website provides guidance on:
- Important concepts in Open Access, such the difference between Green and Gold Open Access;
- Open Access policies a specific research funders, such as HEFCE, RCUK, COAF, ERC, etc.;
- PURE and Strathprints;
- Copyright and licencing;
- Making article processing charge (APC) payments for Gold Open Access articles and how eligible Strathclyde staff can apply for funds;
- Research Data Management;
- ...and much more...
Of course, any general enquiries about Open Access can be directed to our Open Access mailbox.
