UC supports open access while recognising the need for researchers to publish in gold access journals where this is appropriate as part of their publishing strategy.
To encourage all researchers to get their research outputs widely disseminated by making their work publicly accessible, a small trial fund has been made available through the DVC Research to support the payment of article processing charges where no other funds are available. The fund could be particularly useful to early career researchers who may not have access to research grants.

Applications should be received by Thursday 12th November.
