Members of the Open Data working group made a response to the HEFCE call for advice on developing the four UK funding bodies’ joint policy on open access in the post-2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF). This is anticipated to inform development of consultation proposals on implementing an open access requirement in the next REF exercise; and of course adds to the ongoing debate around open access to research articles and related datasets. Thanks again to the group for all the hard work and time invested.

The submitted response is available at the link below, where any further comments can be easily added (no sign-in required) - and would be gladly received.
