Open Access @ Strathclyde

Open Access isn't always a piece of cake...

...which is why we are here to help!

Open Access can at first seem complicated. That is why our team is available on Twitter and Tumblr. These can be followed for the latest news and updates, or to post questions.

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.
