UKRI funding compliant models for small and society publishers
peter.suber's bookmarks 2023-01-30
Under the new UKRI open access policy, all peer-reviewed research and review articles that acknowledge funding from UKRI or any of its councils submitted after 1 April 2022 need to be published open access (OA) immediately, without embargo, under a CC-BY licence, either by the publisher making the final Version of Record (VoR)1 OA, or by allowing authors to self-archive the Version of Record (VoR) or the Author Accepted Manuscript (AAM)2 in a repository. Although publishing an article OA in a hybrid journal is compliant with UKRI’s OA policy, UKRI will not cover the payment of Article Processing Charges (APCs) for hybrid journals, unless the journal is included in a Transitional Agreement with the author’s affiliated institution, or if it meets the sector’s criteria for transformative journals. UK institutions, working through Jisc support several strategies to transition subscription, paywalled content to OA. We aim to provide equitable and tailored paths to transition for smaller, not for profit publishers so that all authors have ubiquitous access to compliant routes to publish and provide a rapid transition to OA. At the same time funds are limited and must support the broadest choice for authors and return the best value from public money. This document sets out a series of options through which small and learned society publishers can offer models that are compliant with UKRI’s funding policy. The models are summarised in the table below and it is likely that more models will emerge throughout the transition.
