Open Access to your research publications can bring many benefits.
The OAPEN-UK project has developed a guide to open access monograph publishing for arts, humanities and social science researchers. The guide aims to help researchers to understand the opportunities and challenges of publishing a scholarly monograph in open access.
This version of the OA life cycle looks at interactions for researchers. The four wheels used are University/library systems, publisher services that directly impact upon the work of researchers, Jisc OA services and the 6 sections of OAWAL showing where we think that fits with the life cycle
Worktribe is not only a Research Information System for the University, but also a window into the University's research output via Repository@Hull. Information on using the system for outputs can be found on the Worktribe Sharepoint site. Training can be arranged by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
All journal articles and conference papers published in a series with an ISSN need to be deposited in Worktribe within 3 months of acceptance by a publisher, in order to meet REF2021 criteria: https://libguides.hull.ac.uk/openaccess/ref
If you have not retained the right to deposit the published version of your article, you should deposit the 'author's final manuscript': the version accepted by your publisher, prior to any formatting or copyediting that is applied during the proofing process.

There are two complementary mechanisms for achieving open access to research. The first mechanism is for authors to publish in open-access journals that do not receive income through reader subscriptions. The second is for authors to deposit their refereed journal article in an open electronic archive. These two mechanisms are often called the ‘gold’ and ‘green’ routes to open access:
MIAO is self-assessment tool for researchers to assess how prepared they think they , and their institution, are for Open Access (OA) compliance. This is based on CIAO - Collaborative Institutional Assessment of Open Access - a benchmarking tool for assessing institutional readiness for Open Access (OA) compliance. This tool has been produced as part of the JISC OA Pathfinder: Making Sense: a researcher-centred approach to funder mandates. Two versions are provided here: one for printing and a web version . The project runs from June 2014 – June 2016 and will explore researcher behaviours using sensemaking techniques, trying to get researchers to comply with UK research open access mandates because they want to rather than having to. The lead institution is Oxford Brookes University, associates are Nottingham Trent University and University of Portsmouth. 31 July 2015 An editable version has now been added which means that you can tailor this tool to suit your own institutional needs
