OA & RCUK funded research
check Journal compliance with RCUK
Before requesting funds you will need to view the Open Access options for your journal to see if it complies with RCUK requirements.
Once you have found out that your journal complies with RCUK requirements you can apply to the University’s Open Access fund.
How to apply to the Open Access Fund
The Open Access fund can be used to cover publishers’ APCs for eligible articles resulting only from RCUK funded research, or which meet the essential criteria outlined on the Open Access publishing page.
Before completing the form, check if any of the APC discounts and deals listed on the Open Access publishing page apply to your journal.
If your research originated in another institution or as a result of collaboration with another institution please read our FAQ on eligibility for Open Access funds for research at, or with, another institution.
