RCUK-funded application form

Journal articles and conference papers acknowledging research funding from one of the seven research councils (RCUK) must comply with their open access policy. In many cases compliance can be achieved by depositing the author accepted manuscript of an article in a repository (i.e. USIR) but  RCUK have also provided funds to universities to facilitate making articles immediately open access. The University of Salford receives a block grant from RCUK to pay open access fees for articles that acknowledge their funding. Please use this form to apply for open access funding for your RCUK-funded  research.
