York Open Research Skills Framework & Open Access Fund

As part of Open Access Week, the Open Research Team are pleased to share the York Open Research Skills Framework, launched to coincide with International Open Access Week 2022.

This framework provides an accessible guide to help University of York researchers navigate the values, benefits and practicalities of embedding open research in their work. It also signposts the support provided by our open research community of practice and includes good practice examples and case studies from a range of disciplines across the University.

The Open Research team are keen to hear if you have any questions or thoughts on the framework, and particularly interested to speak to any researchers who are considering adapting the framework to suit their discipline. A feedback form is provided here.

The team would like to thank our network of Open Research Advocates and other practitioners who helped develop this framework over the summer, led by our Project Coordinator Intern Kate Smith. We are also welcoming new members to join our Advocates network this academic year and help support and promote open research practices across the University – have a look at the Become an Advocate page for details.

Institutional Open Access Fund

This fund has been established by the Library and is available to support University of York postgraduate researchers, and staff, to publish articles, chapters and books in open access journals or with open access publishers. In particular, it is intended to facilitate publishing in open access values for researchers whose work is not externally funded, or whose research funder will not pay open access publishing costs.
