SHU Open Access publication policy

The University’s open access publication policy applies to all research conducted at the University:

  • Authors should add a record of all publications to SHURA on acceptance and deposit a copy as soon as possible afterwards
  • The copy will be made openly available in accordance with publishers’ agreements
  • The green route is preferred but there is a University Open Access Fund to pay for Article Processing Charges (APCs) when the gold route is more appropriate
  • Authors must acknowledge their institutional affiliation in full (Sheffield Hallam University), their source(s) of funding, and indicate where the underlying research data can be accessed
