HEFCE open-access requirements for the post-2014 REF
The HEFCE open access policy requires that all journal articles and conference proceedings (with an ISSN) submitted to the next REF are deposited in a repository within three months of acceptance.
It is therefore essential that staff deposit their final peer-reviewed manuscripts in the UWE Bristol Repository on acceptance.
