Introduction to Making your Thesis Open Access - Tuesday 7 November 2017
A general introduction to open access, with specific reference to the PhD thesis, and related research outputs that may arise from PhD study.

What? Why? When? How? Open access publishing at Imperial‌ NHLI Symplectic training provided as part of NHLI's ongoing commitment to postdoc training.


"I found the meeting really helped me to understand what I need to do to ensure my work is accessible and will qualify for the REF.  In particular it clarified the interconnection between ORCID and Symplectic, but that we need to upload manuscripts via Sympectic even though the publication details will feed through from ORCID.  I hadn't realised that to be included in REF we need to upload the accepted version of a manuscript within 3 months and not wait for a publisher's proof version, even if that becomes available within the 3 month time period.  I am now clear on the different roles of Symplectic and SPIRAL.”
