Changes to the UKRI open access policy come into effect from 1st April 2022, requiring immediate open access to journal articles funded by UKRI. This can be achieved either by publishing in a journal that offers immediate open access to their content (Gold route), or by publishing in a subscription journal and making the accepted manuscript immediately available in a repository (Green route). Researchers will need to take action before submitting a paper to a journal in order to ensure compliance with the new policy. 

More information about the changes and what researchers need to do is available on the Open Access website.
