Open Access : Open Access at St Andrews
Support for Open Access
The Open Access team can provide support in the the following areas:
- Research outputs in the University's research information system - Pure
- REF open access policy
- Funder open access policies
- Open Access publication charges
- Journal hosting service (OJS)
- University's research repository
To support researchers in the University we offer regular training through CAPOD, Gradskills, and one to one sessions. We can arrange to visit schools or departments to offer tailored support sessions if requested, and we also have open office hours on Wednesday afternoons 14:00-16:00.
The Open Access team is part of a wider Digital Research division based in Research and Innovation Services. The Digital Research division encompasses Open Access, Research Data Management, Digital Humanities, St Andrews Research Repository, Journal hosting service (OJS), and Pure support. See the Library web pages for details of the research support services offered and how to contact the various teams.
St Andrews OA policy
"The University encourages its researchers to provide Open Access to published research outputs so that they are online and freely available, meeting the requirements of the growing number of research funders in the UK and internationally who now encourage or mandate Open Access."
