REF 2021 key information

The REF 2021 Open Access policy requires Leeds Beckett researchers to deposit their author accepted manuscript of journal articles and conference proceedings with an ISSN in Symplectic within three months of acceptance. The Research Services team process these records and make them available open access in the Leeds Beckett Repository.

Please note: this does not apply to monographs, book chapters, other long-form publications, working papers, creative or practice-based research outputs, or data (although you are still encouraged, where copyright allows, to deposit these in the Repository).
