Open Access research that is helping to improve educational outcomes for children

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Education, including those researching educational and social practices in curricular subjects. Research in this area seeks to understand the complex influences that increase curricula capacity and engagement by studying how curriculum practices relate to cultural, intellectual and social practices in and out of schools and nurseries.

Research at the School of Education also spans a number of other areas, including inclusive pedagogy, philosophy of education, health and wellbeing within health-related aspects of education (e.g. physical education and sport pedagogy, autism and technology, counselling education, and pedagogies for mental and emotional health), languages education, and other areas.

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 are developing a new 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 will provide 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.
