Open Access: Green OA

Green @ Hull

To make your research available via the Green OA route at the University of Hull you can add it to Worktribe through the Outputs module; Supplementary data/information can also be added (and may be required by your funder).  

What is Green OA?

The basics:
Depositing an article/book in a digital repository
– Directly (self-archiving) or via a local intermediary
The article/book may have been published via a traditional route
– Hence, there may be an embargo on open access through the repository
– Version made open may be final accepted manuscript, not published version
The repository may be:
– Institutional, subject, national, international
– Deposit can be in one or more, as required or found to be useful
Repositories can also hold associated supplementary content
– E.g., Data, working papers, media files, etc.
