"Researchers at Oxford are invited to participate in the University of Oxford’s Rights Retention pilot. Rights Retention is a funder-led initiative that allows immediate open access of peer reviewed journal articles and conference proceedings when ‘gold’ or ‘read and publish’ routes are not available. Research intensive institutions across the UK are in the process of implementing rights retention policies.
The benefits of Rights Retention
Signing up to the Rights Retention Pilot has the following benefits:
- It allows you to meet funder open access requirements where ‘gold’ or ‘read and publish’ routes are not available (information about open access publication routes)
- It allows you and others to access your scholarly articles under a Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) Licence as soon as they are published
- It will make it easier for us to support you in discussions with your publisher
- It will help the University gauge support from the research community for rights retention to inform future policy positions.
We have created a guide to the rights retention pilot (SSO required) with more information on the benefits of signing up, the steps you need to take when submitting your work to a publisher, and the process for depositing your work via Symplectic Elements...."
