Open access is about making research outputs freely available online with reduced restrictions on use and re-use.
Open access benefits researchers by helping you maximise the dissemination of your own research. It also means that the published outputs of research are available to anyone who wishes to read them. The links below provide further guidance on publishing your research open access:
