Scholarly Communication


We currently offer sessions on complying with the REF Open Access requirements, which can be delivered in departments on request. These cover how authors can ensure their publications comply with the policy, common pitfalls, potential exceptions to the policy, and sources of support. Members of our Open Access team lead the sessions, so this is a great opportunity to ask any questions about specific issues. If you would like to host one of these sessions, please contact

We are keen to engage with departments and faculties to ensure researchers are well-informed on issues surrounding publication, data management and Open Research. We can work with academics and librarians to create discipline-specific training sessions. If you would like to discuss the development of a bespoke session for your department, please contact
