We have an institutional repository, called RADAR (Research Archive and Digital Assets Repository), which is a key tool for sharing Oxford Brookes' Open Access research with researchers from other institutions and the general public.
Here are some steps to take to publish your research as Open Access:
1. Choose a journal, conference proceeding, or publisher that allows Open Access publishing before submitting the research output for their consideration. If you would like help identifying an Open Access publication or publisher please contact Scholarly Communications at email@example.com. Please note that there are two main routes for Open Access publishing:
2.

To help you with this we have made step-by-step and videos guides on How to add outputs to Converis for REF 2021. If you are following the Gold route you do not need to upload a manuscript or evidene of acceptance to Converis.
