UKRI launches consultation on open access policy

14 Feb 2020 10:28 AM

UKRI has today launched a consultation on open access policy for any group, organisation or individual with an interest in research and innovation to respond.

UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) has today launched a consultation as part of its Open Access Review.

The consultation will inform the development of a new open access policy, aimed at ensuring that the published outputs of research are widely and freely accessible to all.

The UK government and UKRI recognise open access as an important part of achieving maximum impact from public investment in research.

The consultation will close on 17 April.

UKRI will use responses to inform its final policy, which it intends to announce later in 2020.
