Check your eligibility and complete the funding application form.

Limited funds remain in the UKRI 2020/21 open access grant and we may need to introduce restrictions on further expenditure. Please do not assume we can fund open access for your publication until you receive confirmation from the open access team.


Publications must meet the following criteria to be eligible for funds from the university's UKRI open access grant:

  • An original peer-reviewed research article, conference proceedings or non-commissioned review article
  • Acknowledges funding from one or more UKRI funders
  • The publisher makes the final version free to read at the time of publication
  • Published with the Creative Commons Attribution (CC-BY) licence (not CC-BY-NC or CC-BY-NC-ND).
  • NEW: Unable to comply with the UKRI open access policy via the green route
  • NEW: Where the open access fee (including VAT) exceeds £3,500 in a subscription (hybrid) journal or £5,000 in an open access journal, authors may need to pay the difference.
