The UCC Open Access to Publications Policy was devised by Information Services and the Office of the VP for Research and Innovation working with the Academic Council Research and Innovation Committee. The policy is available here
In November 2016, Academic Council approved adoption of an Open Access to Publications Policy for all staff employed by UCC.
Authors of peer-reviewed articles and peer-reviewed conference papers resulting from research carried out at University College Cork will deposit a copy in the CORA (Cork Open Research Archive) repository.
In order to comply with the policy, you should 'act on acceptance'. When your journal article or conference paper has been accepted for publication, you should either upload the accepted version through your IRIS profile or e-mail the file to firstname.lastname@example.org. UCC Library will make deposit as easy as possible by checking copyright and adhering to the publisher's terms and conditions.
