From 1st April 2016 journal articles and conference proceedings (with an ISSN) must be deposited in an institutional repository at the point of acceptance, as mandated by HEFCE.

The output must be deposited within three months of the date of acceptance. Embargo periods and exceptions apply where necessary. This is Green Open Access.

If you have published via the Gold Open Access route (where an Article Processing Charge has been paid to make your publication immediately available for free on the journal website) then you should still update the record and upload the published version to Symplectic as soon as it becomes available.

For more information see these FAQs from HEFCE or contact us.
