Information for Historians on the RCUK Open Access Policy

20 March 2013

RCUK has announced the final version of its Open Access policy, which as from 1 April 2013 applies certain requirements to recipients of research-council funding (i.e. to recipients of postgraduate studentships, research fellowships and research grants from AHRC and ESRC). These requirements apply to all journal publications stemming from RCUK-funded research – any journal articles that would need to acknowledge RCUK support.
