The University of Liverpool fully supports the principles and practice of open access publishing and provides support to those authors wishing to make their outputs available immediately on an open access basis. The university is part of the IEEE Open Access Unlimited agreement, which means that all University of Liverpool staff can make their work open access immediately on publication in the 100+ IEEE journals that have gold open access options.
On acceptance you will be asked if you wish to make your work open access – once you’ve said yes, the library team will be asked to confirm that you are a member of staff at the university. Once this has been confirmed, your work will be made available on an open access basis, under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution License (which will meet the requirements of all major research funders).
If you need any open access related help, please visit the library’s open access website at http://libguides.liverpool.ac.uk/openaccess/.
