Did you know that your open access choices not only affect the visibility of your research but also whether your outputs are eligible for the next REF? 

The new REF requirement launched on 1 April 2016. All academics and researchers need to act on acceptance to make their outputs REF eligible. Articles and conference papers must be placed in an online repository within 3 months of acceptance for publication.

So while you’re celebrating your next article being accepted for publication, make sure you deposit your work in the Oxford Research Archive repository. This free service for University of Oxford researchers allows you to quickly and easily deposit your work via Symplectic Elements. 

Nearly a quarter of MSD researchers have taken advantage of the free service since 1 April 2016.  Head of Division, Professor Alastair Buchan reported that it was a quick and painless process.

You deposit, we’ll take care of the rest.

For more information on open access at Oxford and how to make sure that your work is eligible for the next REF visit the OA Oxford website.
