DFID Open and Enhanced Access Policy Published at Long Last:
From November 1st, all recipients of DFID funded research must make their findings freely available.
Under the new policy, researchers will be required to make peer-reviewed journal articles open access through one of two routes: open access publishing (gold open access) or self-archiving (green open access).
The policy actually also extends to data sets, video, audio, images, and software, and contains some interesting citations to rationalise this choice.
It also is intended to give a boost to the DFID Research 4 Development (R4D) portal.
