1. Only publications whose full text is lodged in an institutional
repository, and is either open access or scheduled to be automatically made
open access in compliance with the next requirement, will be eligible to be
cited in support of ERA submissions after 1 January 2016

2. Books and book chapters, and research outputs other than journal and
conference artices, are exempt from the open access requirement, but not
the lodgement requirement. Journal and conference articles must be made
open access as soon as possible, but no later than six months after
publication for biological and medical articles, one year for other
sciences, and two years for the humanities and fine arts. Either the final
draft (NISO term: AM or Accepted Manuscript) or the published form (NISO
term: VoR or Version of Record) is acceptable.

3. If an article is published with open access, then a repository entry
with full metadata and a link to the open access version of the full text
is acceptable in meeting the requirement. A copy of the full-text is not
required.

4. The ARC will move to eliminating HERDC metadata collection, and ERA RODA
full text collection, from 1 January 2016, instead harvesting the data
direct from university repositories.

5. Universities are responsible for ensuring compliance. Non-compliance may
cause omission from the ERA.

...11. We propose to treat as =E2=80=98open access=E2=80=99 publications th=
ose which meet
all of the following criteria:


=EF=82=B7 deposited in the author's own institutional repository (see parag=
raph 13)
immediately upon publication, although the repository may provide access in
a way that respects agreed embargos (see paragraph 15)


=EF=82=B7 made available as the final peer reviewed text, though not necess=
arily
identical to the publisher=E2=80=99s edited and formatted version...


12. We intend that work which has been originally published in an
ineligible form then retrospectively made available in time for the
post-2014 REF submission date should not be eligible, as the primary
objective of this proposal is to stimulate immediate open-access
publication....


15. Some publishers introduce embargo periods before work can be made
available in an open-access form. Where embargoes apply we propose to
determine eligible periods with regard to the practice of other major
research funders at the time. Outputs will be eligible if they are still
under an acceptable embargo at the REF submission date. The Research
Councils are still developing their guidance on embargo periods in
discussion with interested parties, including ourselves. We look forward to
their decisions which, along with responses to this letter, will inform our
final consultation proposals....
