If you are submitting a paper to a journal that is the direct result of RCUK funding, please contact Hitesh Patel in the Research Office for information about how to access UKRI block funds. 

UKRI policy for papers acknowledging Research Councils support requires that they are made open access without any restriction on re-use. Therefore, papers should be published with a Creative Commons Attribution licence (CC-BY), and not a more restrictive non-commercial licence. Funding from UKRI may be available to grant recipients for payment of 'gold' Open Access charges. 

It is the author's responsibility to ensure that the correct licence is applied to their article. If you require some assistance, please do not hesitate to contact the research office or Michael Murphy in the library.
