Submission to the HEFCE consultation on open access in the post-2014 REF

30 October 2013

The REF should judge research outputs solely on the basis of research quality factors. 

Our view is that the Green route to open access is a simple, genuine and cost effective way of delivering open access.

We recommend some flexibility around when outputs are available within institutional repositories. Making outputs available in institutional repositories close to the point of publication would be a more workable option.
