The University does not have any central institutional fund to pay Open Access charges, however, in many cases you can comply with REF Open Access requirements without paying a fee.
The University does receive grants from RCUK and COAF to support their Open Access policies. Upload your manuscript and we’ll let you know if your paper is eligible for these funds. It’s important that you contact us before selecting an Open Access option from your publisher. The University has some arrangements with some publishers which gives us discounts to the article processing charges (APCs).

Funders other than RCUK or COAF may have Open Access policies, some of which can only be met using a paid option - we can advise you.
