Help with Open Access 

As a researcher making your work available openly can help to increase its visibility, meaning it is read more, cited more and has a greater impact.


We have a suite of Open Access webpages that offer advice on:

  • What Open Access means (including the HEFCE policy for the next REF)
  • The benefits of making your work Open Access
  • How to deposit your papers to the institutional repository, LJMU Research Online
  • How to check if your journal will allow you to deposit a version to the repository
  • What an APC is and if we can help you pay for one

The site also has a handy glossary to help you with those Open Access terms.

For further information and if you’d like someone to come and talk to you or a group of your staff about Open Access in more detail, please contact our Open Access and Digital Scholarship Librarian, Cath Dishman
