University of Bath Adopts Open Access Mandate

The University of Bath has adopted an open access mandate.

Here's an excerpt:

  1. The University of Bath requires researchers to deposit full-text copies of their peer-reviewed journal articles and papers from published conference proceedings (subject to copyright provisions) in the University of Bath research repository, Opus4.
  2. The mandate applies to items published after 1 June 2011. Publications from 2008 onwards should also be added in readiness for the REF.
  3. The full-text of the paper and its details should be uploaded to Opus as close to publication as possible. See the Quick Start Guide for details.
  4. Optional deposit of other research outputs such as book sections, reports, working papers and conference presentations is supported. These items will be identified as peer-reviewed or non-peer-reviewed as appropriate.
