King's Publication Policy and Open Access
King’s College London requires that:
- Researchers create bibliographic records within King's institutional repository Pure for all research outputs they have authored, so there is a comprehensive institutional record of research activity. Within these records, where funding was received, links should be made to the appropriate research project/grants that supported the research.
- Researchers deposit into Pure the publisher accepted author final draft/author accepted manuscript version of the full-text, attached to the appropriate bibliographic record, for all peer reviewed journal articles and conference papers. This should be done where permitted by the publisher's self-archiving policy - paying regard to any embargo period, as soon as possible after the date of publication or sooner if required to comply with timescales mandated by the policies of external funders or government.
The full King's Publications Policy can be found here.
Please be aware that King’s College London also requires its authors to meet any open access requirements mandated by their funders. Further information about complying with individual funders can be found here.
King’s authors are free to choose the most appropriate journal to submit their work for publication, with the proviso that their chosen journal also permits compliance with the open access requirements of their funder.
When co-authoring publications with researchers from other institutions, it is the responsibility of the King’s author to inform their co-authors of King’s open access policy requirements.
