SHERPA/REF Stakeholder Consultation

Johnson, Rob

The Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) has commissioned the Centre for Research Communications (CRC) at the University of Nottingham to develop a new service to support authors and institutions in meeting the new open access (OA) requirements of the post 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF). The new service, called SHERPA/REF, will build on the current portfolio of SHERPA services and it will help authors and institutions ascertain whether a journal allows them to comply with the REF policy, and what to do when it does and when it does not. As part of the project, the CRC commissioned Research Consulting to carry out a consultation to identify stakeholder requirements and inform specifications for the proposed SHERPA/REF service.
