Will I have to make my articles openly accessible to be entered for the next REF?

Research England have announced that peer-reviewed journal articles and conference papers will only be eligible for submission for the next REF if they are openly accessible online through the Green route. Other forms of research outputs such as monographs, books, book chapters, catalogues, manuals and non-printed material are not subject to these Open Access requirements at present. NB! All forms of research publications must be submitted into Bradford Scholars regardless of REF requirements via RIS.
