Open Access at Cardiff
Domain: D2 Communication and dissemination

Format of workshop: Information and Discussion/Practical
Suitable for: Middle or Late stage researchers

You are now required to publish your research outputs in an Open Access format if you have a Research Council, Wellcome Trust or Horizon 2020 Grant, Fellowship or PhD studentship. HEFCE also mandates Open Access for journal articles and conference proceedings submitted to the next Research Excellence Framework (REF). This session will introduce you to the main information you need about open access publishing, including the different ways of publishing (Gold and Green routes), how to find out your publisher’s policies and costs, and financial support available at Cardiff. There will be hands-on work where you will be able to look at journals and publishers in your own subject area.

Note: You may also wish to attend a session entitled ‘Citations Count!’.
