- Open Access Publication Policy
From 1 January 2014, the University of Portsmouth’s Open Access Publication Policy applies to all peer-reviewed papers published in journals or conference proceedings. Authors are required to add the following to University’s Institutional Repository, immediately on first publication:
(i) Information (metadata) describing the Output, for example Authors, title, journal, abstract.
(ii) When the publishers’ copyright permissions permit, the Post-print version of the Output.
(iii) If the publisher specifies an embargo period, then the Post-print version should be set to become visible after the embargo period has expired.
- Institutional Repository (Parade) and the new Research Information Management System (Pure)
By February 2014, the Research Information Management System (Pure) will be launched. Pure will, over time, offer the facility for managing the entire research life-cycle; including bids, awards, activities, projects, people, equipment and research outputs.
A phased approach is being taken to the implementation of Pure, with the first phase focusing on research outputs and integration with Parade – the University’s institutional repository. From February, research outputs will be added to Pure and a copy of these outputs will be automatically added to Parade. Research outputs can be added to Pure by the Faculty Depositor. Academic and research staff will also be able to manage their own profile and outputs in the future if they wish.
We will release more information about Pure nearer its launch. In the meantime, if you have any questions then please contact Dr Kate Charles (Head of Research and Commercialisation).
Arrangements for submitting research outputs to the institutional repository during January 2014: In order to implement Pure and successfully integrate it with Parade it has been necessary to suspend deposits of research outputs for a limited period. If academics have research publications that they need to submit to the repository during January, please contact Dr Emily Bennett (Research Outputs Manager).
- European Funding Day and UKRO Visit – 5 February 2014
On Wednesday 5 February 2014, Research and Innovation Services will be hosting an all-day event on European funding for research and innovation. This event is for researchers with no prior knowledge of EU funding, and for those who wish to update and expand their EU experiences. As part of the European Funding Day, you will have the opportunity to learn about the new EU funding framework ‘Horizon 2020’ and to attend workshops on the EU funding schemes for individual researchers. Our UKRO representative, Maribel Glogowski, will be present throughout the day and you will be able to benefit from her knowledge and expertise. If you would like to book a place for the morning session please visit Eventbrite.
During the afternoon we will be holding focussed workshops on specific funding streams (Marie Curie Individual Fellowships, ERC Starting and Consolidator Grants and Marie-Curie Innovative Training Networks ). Attendance at these workshops will be subject to separate advertisement and booking.
