It is not mandatory to add a file to a record in Symplectic, but it is preferable.

Adding a file such as a PDF of your accepted manuscript means that the publication is being made Open Access, but note that any publisher restrictions or embargoes will be checked and applied before it is made live. Also, if you add the record and file within three months of acceptance, the publication will be REF eligible. 

Adding files is quick and simple, please see our webpage for details or contact us
