Open Access

Committed to Open Access

HSE is committed to providing open access to peer-reviewed papers describing research we have funded.

From 1st January 2014, we have made ALL HSE-led research published as scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals and comparable conference proceedings open access, wherever the publisher gives this option. This policy implements, for HSE, the UK Government's commitment to improving access to publicly funded research.

Further details

For information about the outcome of the recommendations of the independent working group that was set up by the UK Government under the chairmanship of Professor Dame Janet Finch - the 'Finch Group' - to examine how to effectively expand access to the quality-assured outputs of publicly funded research, see this link
