RCUK-funded researchers are reminded that Oxford’s policy for our RCUK block grant changed in August and means we are no longer able to pay Article Processing Charges (APCs) for hybrid (subscription-based) journals. Authors of these articles should use the 'Green' route to open access, regardless of journal embargo length. For fully open access journals (listed in authors can apply for APC costs while RCUK funds are still available; please check with the APC team first.
