Open access with ePrints

Newcastle University authors can make their publications open access at no cost by depositing their accepted manuscripts in our institutional respository ePrints. This helps maximise the discoverability and impact of your research as well as meeting the open access requirements for REF.

Any member of university staff can add their research outputs to ePrints. Subject to copyright permission, this can include published papers, conference proceedings, working papers, technical reports, book chapters and other research outputs.

The open access team will ensure that uploaded manuscripts comply with publisher policy and will apply any required embargo before they become publicly available.

Add publications to ePrints via MyImpact

Publications are added to ePrints by uploading the appropriate files to MyImpact. In most cases, this should be the author's accepted manuscript. Publisher-formatted manuscripts can typically only be used where already open access and under an appropriate licence.
