Speaker(s): Nicola Dowson - Library Services OU & Nadine Lewycky - Research Strategy Office

Confused about gold and green open access publishing? Would you like to know about the ways in which open access publishing and changing funder policies including the HEFCE Policy for the next REF could impact on how and where you publish? This session will give an overview of the open access landscape and the OU’s Open Access Policy which was agreed by Research Committee in March.
