UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) announced its new open access policy in August 2021. The UKRI open access policy applies to:
- peer-reviewed research articles submitted for publication from 1 April 2022
- monographs, book chapters and edited collections published from 1 January 2024.
Here you will find information on:
- activities we will be undertaking to support the implementation of our new policy
- some background on the activities that informed the policy, including an explanation of our policy decisions.
For UKRI’s open access requirements and supporting guidance, see making your research publications open access.
UKRI has produced an information pack about the new UKRI open access policy. This is for research organisations to use to engage researchers about the new policy.
