Request for Feedback

AU is updating its Open Access Policy in light of the changing Open Access landscape. UKRI recently published its new Open Access requirements and other funders’ (including HEFCW and Research England) are doing the same.

The last week in October is International Open Access Week and this presents an opportune moment for the AU Open Access Working Group to seek feedback and ideas on what this new Policy should look like and what aspects of Open Research it should include.  Take a look at the new UKRI Policy, the current AU policy, and perhaps at other HEIs Open Access Strategies or Policies or possibly overarching position statements on Open Research.

The Open Access Working Group will be accepting feedback (to openaccess@aber.ac.uk) until the end of November, after which the Group will come together to incorporate views into a new AU Open Access policy covering all research publications.
