At the outset of collaborations you should make sure that all authors know that you are required to deposit the manuscript upon acceptance. If you do not receive the manuscript in time, you should send it to us as soon as you have it, but be aware that we will not be able to make it comply with HEFCE requirements. If this occurs after the policy begins being enforced on 1 April 2016, the paper’s REF-eligibility will be affected.
