Durham Open Access Policy
Durham University is committed to sharing the findings of its world-class research as widely as possible to enhance its use and impact within the academic and research community and more widely within society.
All peer reviewed research outputs published since 1st January 2008 must be deposited upon acceptance for publication in Durham Research Online (DRO), the University’s institutional repository .This should be the final peer-reviewed, pre-publication version of the paper where copyright restricts the use of the published version.
Where copyright agreements permit, all deposited research will be made publicly available, respecting publisher determined embargo periods.
This is in line with the proposed requirements of the post-2014 REF and the requirements of various research funding bodies, including Research Councils UK, the Wellcome Trust and the European Commission.
