1. Introduction to Funder and Institutional Open Access Mandates

This section covers funder mandates on Open Access and tools to support researchers to comply with the mandates.  The method of delivery is a mixture of text with PDF files and presentations, and occasional video files. 

On completion of this section, you will have a better understanding of funder Open Access mandates when publishing funded research output. 

Thinking points

  • Do you have a clear understanding of your funder's Open Access mandates on making your research output publicly available?
  • Do you know where to find more information on your funder's Open Access mandates?
