UKRI Open Access Policy

  1. 1. UKRI Open Access Policy Tahia Zaidi, Senior Strategy Advisor
  2. 2. Overview and background
  3. 3. UK Research and Innovation • Our vision is for an outstanding research and innovation system in the UK that provides everyone with the opportunity to contribute and to benefit, enriching lives locally, nationally and globally • Key role in delivering the government’s ambitions for the UK as a global leader in research and innovation. This includes priorities set out in the Plan for Growth, R&D Roadmap, Innovation Strategy, and the R&D People and Culture Strategy, Integrated Review and Levelling Up White Paper • Largest public funder in the UK • Launched in April 2018, we are a non-departmental public body sponsored by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) • Brings together the seven disciplinary research councils, Research England, which is responsible for supporting research and knowledge exchange at higher education institutions in England, and the UK’s innovation agency, Innovate UK
  4. 4. Open data Open access Open culture UKRI Strategy – Championing open research • UKRI works with stakeholders to promote open research throughout our activities, across the UK and internationally to: • deliver economic and social benefit • support transparency, verification and reproducibility, research integrity, re-use and innovation • enhance collaboration within and across disciplines, domains and sectors • Our ambition is to lead improvements through policy, practice and technological innovations to achieve an open research system that operates internationally Open access (OA) to publications; Open data, software, methods and protocols; Open culture by reforming incentives and research assessment, recognising and supporting related skills and teams
  5. 5. Open Access to Research Publications A key priority for UKRI (and for research funders around the world) Outputs of research widely and freely accessible under conditions that allow maximum reuse.​ Benefits of OA include: • increasing opportunity for researchers, practitioners and others to access, use and build on research funded by the public • improving the reach and potential impact of research findings • research efficiency, quality, integrity and trust by facilitating collaborative, transparent and reproducible research practices • ensuring access to publicly funded research which delivers value for money for taxpayers who have funded the research
  6. 6. Government commitment to open research “Crucially, we must embrace the potential of open research practices. First, we will require that research outputs funded by the UK government are freely available to the taxpayer who funds research. Such open publication will also ensure that UK research is cited and built on all over the world. We will mandate open publication and strongly incentivise open data sharing where appropriate, so that reproducibility is enabled, and knowledge is shared and spread collaboratively.” UK Research and Development Roadmap - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk) “…incentivising best practice as part of the wider open research ambition UKRI will be publishing an updated open access policy later this summer, aimed at making the outputs of UKRI-funded research freely and immediately accessible. This is part of wider UKRI work to keep the UK at the forefront on research integrity through open research that is accessible, transparent, cooperative and reproducible which are integral to a healthy research culture and environment.” R&D People and Culture Strategy (publishing.service.gov.uk)
  7. 7. Open Access Review 2018 - 2021 • In 2018, UKRI launched its OA Review of its previous OA requirements • Aims of the review: immediate Open Access – moving from a missed target of 75% in 2016; affordability; alignment across UKRI, UK and internationally. • The Review process included: • Extensive engagement with stakeholders via roundtables and workshops • Evidence-gathering and analysis • Public consultation • Independent economic assessment • Further information: Shaping our open access policy – UKRI
  8. 8. UKRI Open Access Policy for longform outputs
  9. 9. The UKRI Open Access Policy and longform outputs Introduces a new OA requirement for monographs, book chapters and edited collections from 2024, within 12 months of publication Applies to in-scope long-form publications that need to acknowledge funding from UKRI or any of its Councils (including those authored by staff based at UKRI institutes, facilities and units) • Unless a contract has been signed between the author and the publisher before this date that prevents adherence to the policy. However, UKRI strongly encourages authors and publishers to make publications open access. Is a condition of our funding. UKRI grant holders and research organisations are responsible for ensuring publications comply with the policy
  10. 10. Requirements for long-form publications • Permissive approach via Version of Record or the Author’s Accepted Manuscript to be open access (OA) under a Creative Commons licence, within 12 months of publication. • Where the Author’s Accepted Manuscript is deposited, it should be clear that this is not the final published version. • Exceptions – third party materials where re-use permissions cannot be obtained and there is no suitable alternative; where the only suitable publisher cannot offer OA; where a contract was signed before 1 January 2024 that prevents compliance. • Out of scope (not an exhaustive list) – exhibition catalogues, trade books, scholarly illustrated catalogues, fictional works, scholarly editions, creative works, longform outputs from UKRI training grants etc.
  11. 11. Routes to compliance • Version of record: Publish the output via a publisher’s website or publishing platform open access within 12 months of publication with a creative commons licence. • Author’s accepted manuscript: Deposit the author’s accepted manuscript in an institutional or subject repository within 12 months of publication of the version of record with a creative commons licence.
  12. 12. Implementing the policy
  13. 13. Funding to support the policy requirements • From January 2024, £3.5 million per annum will be dedicated to supporting open access for long-form outputs via a ring-fenced fund. • The fund will be centrally held by UKRI and research organisations will apply to UKRI to access it. • The process, and definition of eligible costs, for the fund are currently being developed. Our aim is to: • make the application process straightforward for authors and their organisations • support different models
  14. 14. Developing guidance and resources • We are working collaboratively to deliver other guidance and resources to support the implementation of our policy, and open access more generally, for monographs, edited collections, and book chapters. • We are also developing guidance on how to manage the exceptions to the policy.
