Welcome to the fourteenth monthly update on OpenAIR@RGU – RGU’s open access institutional repository. Please direct any queries to the team at publications@rgu.ac.uk.

REF Open Access Compliance

The REF (“Research Excellence Framework”) is a national assessment of university research capabilities, which has a direct impact on the amount of funding we receive. The next REF exercise will be happening in 2021, looking at research produced between 2014 and 2020. As all of our research staff should know, REF2021 has explicit requirements for certain types of research output to be made open access within three months of being accepted for publication – further details of these requirements can be found on our researcher guides.

In the publications team’s latest compliance check (using data extracted on 2018-02-06), RGU as a whole is currently 82% compliant. It is very important that researchers ensure all their outputs are compliantly deposited in OpenAIR by contacting the publications team as soon as possible after acceptance for publication.
