How to help researchers navigate Open Access requirements (for librarians and administrators)

Wed 1 Aug 2018


Are the researchers in your department confused about what they need to do about Open Access?

This support session will equip you to help them understand:

  • what Open Access policies actually mean for researchers across the disciplines
  • what they are required to do in order for their research to be eligible for REF 2021

Dr Arthur Smith of the Office of Scholarly Communication will discuss everything you need to know to guide researchers through the process of making research Open Access, and will demonstrate how to manage key tasks in Symplectic Elements.

Target audience
  • University of Cambridge librarians
  • University of Cambridge research support staff
  • Further details regarding eligibility criteria are available

Number of sessions: 1
