Open Access


Open Access to DMU publications

De Montfort University supports the principle that results of publicly-funded research should be made available as widely and freely as possible, this is known as 'Open Access.'

From 1 April 2016, the full text of all new DMU articles and conference papers should be made available in the institutional repository (DORA), to other researchers, students and the wider public (subject to any publisher-imposed embargo periods).

For details, see the DMU's policy on Managing Open Access.

A variety of support on Open Access is available to DMU researchers, through the Library and Learning Service (LLS), and the Research, Business and Innovation Directorate (RBI):

Access to DMU's publications is through the institutional repository, DORA.

A new Author Rights and Copyright guide provides advice on protecting your copyrights as an author of an academic publication, when dealing with publishers.
