- To ensure that the University policy framework for Open Access to publications and research data (‘Open Data’) is in place and remains fully fit-for-purpose as the broader policy landscape evolves; and to provide input as required to external consultations on Open Access matters.
- To ensure that the University continues to comply with the Open Access requirements of our key funders, including HECFE and RCUK, regarding both making publications and research data publicly available and providing monitoring and reporting mechanisms as required.
- To oversee the distribution and management of block grant allocations from funders to support Open Access requirements.
- To oversee the development of the necessary IT system and operational arrangements, including the institutional repository or repositories, and the wider Open Access workflow, to achieve the above aims.
- To report to the Research Policy Committee via an annual report and otherwise as necessary.
The Project Board will normally meet three times per annum.
