EPSRC has recently introduced policies that require work they fund to both publish results in open access journals and make data generated or collected in that research openly available. These policies are likely to be applied across all UK research councils in the near future. EPSRC are going to be auditing funded research to evaluate adherence to these policies and will impose sanctions on those found not to be applying these policies. That means that if you have EPSRC grants you and the University may face fines or other sanctions if you are not making your data or publications publicly available.
This seminar will present EPSRC's requirements on data and publications and discuss what impact that has on EPCC's work and what university systems there are to support researchers in adhering to these policies.
