UKRI Open Access Monographs and Book Chapters 2024



The Think, Check, Submit website offer a comprehensive checklist tool to help you discover if you are submitting your research to a trusted publisher. Their Books & Chapters tool also permits you to download the checklist results.

UKRI Longform Publications

If you are publishing a monograph, book chapter or edited collection on or after 1 January 2024, you must follow the UKRI open access policy.

You must make your long-form output open access within 12 months of publication and use an open licence.

The final Version of Record or the Author’s Accepted Manuscript must be free to view and download via an online publication platform, publishers’ website, or institutional or subject repository within a maximum of 12 months of publication, with a Creative Commons CC-BY licence. 

The open access version should include, where possible, any images, illustrations, tables and other supporting content. Where an Author’s Accepted Manuscript is deposited, it should be clear that this is not the final published version.

Some exemptions apply.
