Abstract

With the final consultation period now over, the Open Access policy for the next REF has been released. Alma Swan looks at the rollout which requires the deposit of articles into repositories and finds this is pragmatic but good policymaking. With that simple requirement, the culture in British universities can be shifted towards open access. Swan also notes areas where the HEFCE policy could be better, notably the inclusion of monographs, shorter embargo periods, and closer alignment with European policies.
