One to one support
We offer one to one consultations on open access related topics.
You can book a one to one if you need support with open access and the REF, paying for open access from your Wellcome or RCUK grant, using Symplectic, options for open access, making your research open access, or require any other advice about open access publishing.

"I found the meeting really helped me to understand what I need to do to ensure my work is accessible and will qualify for the REF. In particular it clarified the interconnection between ORCID and Symplectic, but that we need to upload manuscripts via Sympectic even though the publication details will feed through from ORCID. I hadn't realised that to be included in REF we need to upload the accepted version of a manuscript within 3 months and not wait for a publisher's proof version, even if that becomes available within the 3 month time period. I am now clear on the different roles of Symplectic and SPIRAL.”
