Rights Retention Text
The Wellcome Trust require all WIN members to include the following sentence in the acknowledgements section of their publications:
This research was funded in whole, or in part, by the Wellcome Trust [Grant number xxxxx]. For the purpose of open access, the author has applied a CC BY public copyright licence to any Author Accepted Manuscript version arising from this submission.
Update on Springer Nature journals (MAY 2023)
Jisc and UK institutions are in negotiation with Springer Nature to reach a sustainable read and publish agreement for the Springer, Nature, Nature Research journals and Palgrave journals. One of the main pinch points is the lack of transparency behind their open access pricing.
UK institutions have now voted to accept the fifth proposal from Springer Nature and Jisc are moving to final contract negotiations, implementing the agreement once the negotiations have been completed – expected in June.
Until the contract negotiations have been finalised, Oxford authors who have a paper accepted by Springer, Nature, Nature Research journals and Palgrave journals should contact the APC team.
Update on requesting APC payment (September 2023)
Please check your paper's eligibility before submitting your paper. Upon acceptance, submit your APC payment request online. Please do not request an invoice or raise a PO yourself unless instructed by the APC team, as they can usually handle payment directly with the publisher.
