This short video provides a basic introduction to open access for research outputs, and explains how to navigate REF and funders’ open access policies. 

You can find a transcript of the voiceover in EdShare.

We can also check on publishers' open access policies on your behalf. If you would like us to do so please email, including the name of the journal and details of any past or present awards or studentships that you are planning to acknowledge in your article.
