It’s important to upload your manuscript before you sign an agreement, even if that’s before acceptance. This allows us to advise you on the correct Open Access or copyright option to select.
If you’ve already signed, we can check whether the agreement allows you to comply with HEFCE and your other funders’ Open Access policies. If it doesn’t comply, we can liaise with your publisher and help you negotiate amended rights. If you need advice and guidance please contact us.
