If you are writing articles based on RCUK funded research, then this post should hopefully be useful for you!  The University has some funds available to pay for ‘gold’ Open Access (OA) for publishing your journal articles.

Gold OA means that your article will be publicly available on the publisher’s website as soon as it is published. The professionally formatted publisher’s version of your article can also be shared with others and re-posted on other websites. This potentially increases the likelihood that people from within academia and beyond (e.g. industry, businesses and government) will find, cite and use your research.
