Open Access & Institutional Repository: Funder open access policies

Funder summary

We do not have a central institutional fund for open access payments; the University of Southampton supports open access via self-archiving your Accepted Manuscript in Pure and no-cost-to-the-author publisher memberships and agreements.​

We do hold open access block grants for journal articles acknowledging UKRIWellcome Trust or Cancer Research UK. These can be used for articles submitted to fully open access journals.​ The Library does not receive a block grant from NIHR but we have included details of their policy as we know many researcher in our community are funded by them.

Non Compliant Journals - The Blood journals

Many research funders require outputs underpinned by their grant to be made open access at the point of publication and with a CC BY (Creative Commons Attribution) license. The Blood journals, published by the American Society of Hematology, including their open access title Blood Advances, do not comply because they only offer the more restrictive Creative Commons CC BY-NC-ND license.  

This may prevent some authors from being able to publish in Blood journals. The only potential route to compliance at present is to include a statement in the acknowledgements assigning a CC BY license to the accepted manuscript arising and manually depositing a copy in the Europe PubMed repository. Please note, we cannot pay publishing charges in Blood Advances until a publisher enabled route to compliance is available.
