The presentation provides a summary for the available routes for (Green and Gold) Open Access implementation at Strathclyde, covering aspects like the REF2021 Open Access policy requirements, the workflows for requesting Gold OA funding from the Open Access Team at the Library, the increasing number of 'Read & Publish' agreements with publishers and the most suitable moment within the publishing cycle to reach out for advice around OA. This timing is consistently shifting backwards in the publishing cycle: the arrival of R&P deals has prompted many authors (esp ECRS) to reach out before manuscript submission, and the suggested timing for a generic first contact is soon after an externally-funded project has been awarded to a research group (i.e. before any publications are actually written or datasets produced) so that researchers in the project consortium are aware of the specific funder policies they would need to meet. The slides were delivered within the Nov 22nd, 2021 session "Open Publications, Data, Engagement and Beyond: How Openness Benefits You and Others" remotely held at University of Strathclyde in order to promote best practices in Open Research.
