UKRI consultation now open: How can we achieve Open Access to research publications?


UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) has announced a nine week consultation to inform their proposed Open Access policy. 

Open Access aims to make the published findings of publicly-funded research freely available online as soon as possible, in ways that will maximise re-use.  The consultation launched on 13 February 2020 and closes at noon on 17 April 2020.

 The consultation is open to all individuals with an interest in research and innovation and we would encourage the NIHR stakeholder community to respond to this consultation. 

The findings of the consultation will support the exploration of open access issues across the UK Government.
