The University has released a statement for Research Publications. This is to increase the visibility of research publications associated with the University and to ensure compliance with funder and REF requirements for OA. As part of this statement:
- All University of Birmingham researchers are expected to record bibliographic details in Pure for peer-reviewed publications, immediately on acceptance for publication. This applies to all types of research publication including articles, conference papers, reviews, books and chapters.
- In addition, all researchers are expected to deposit in Pure the full text of the final accepted draft manuscript (post-print) of all peer-reviewed journal articles and published conference proceedings, immediately on acceptance. Deposited manuscripts will, where possible, be made open access in UBIRA.
- The University requirement applies to all peer-reviewed publications accepted for publication from 1 May 2015 onwards. Researchers are welcome to deposit items published earlier than this, other publication types or unpublished material.
