RCUK Research Outputs Network (RON)
Each Research Council is represented on the RCUK Research Outputs Network (link opens in a new window) committee. The committee commissions reports and proposes common policy on research outputs such as academic publications and data.
In response to proposals from this group, the chief executives of the Research Councils have agreed that over time the UK Research Councils will support increased open access, by:
- building on their mandates on grant-holders to deposit research papers in suitable repositories within an agreed time period, and;
- extending their support for publishing in open access journals, including through the pay-to-publish model.
