Open Access for the REF
For the next Research Excellence Framework (REF) process there is a policy on open access.
This policy states that to be eligible for the inclusion for the REF journal articles and conference papers accepted on or after 1 April 2016 must be deposited into a repository. University of Warwick’s policy is that all outputs should be deposited in our institutional repository, WRAP.
