University Publications Policy


At the meeting of Senate on 5th June 2008 a new University Publications Policy was approved. The key aim of the new policy is to maximise the impact of the University's research by making publications as widely and freely available as possible through the University's institutional repository Enlighten. The policy will apply from the beginning of the 2008/2009 academic session.
