How can the Research Support Team help?

  • We can give detailed guidance on the open access requirements that must be followed to ensure your papers are eligible for submission to REF2021.

  • We can help you comply with your funders' open access mandates and where immediate open access (usually Gold) is required by a funder, we administer funds intended to cover APCs for which you may be eligible.
  • We also have information on publisher's membership schemes and deals that can benefit King's authors - and which can offer APC discounts even when we aren't able to provide funds directly.
  • We offer assistance creating publication records on Pure, and advice on the appropriate versions of documents to upload (primarily the author's accepted manuscript though sometimes final publisher's pdf).

  • We can help inform your decisions about where to publish - especially when funder mandates come into conflict with publisher's embargo or licensing requirements.

  • We can provide general guidance or answer specific questions on open access.
