UKRI’s open access policy for monographs, book chapters and edited collections goes live on 1 January 2024.

In preparation for policy launch, this webinar will help those who support open access at their institutions understand how publishers enable authors with funder requirements to make long-form research outputs publicly available and how this can assist with engagement with authors about the policy and completing stage 1 and 2 of the funding application.

Three publishers will talk through the process at their publishing houses and there will be the opportunity to ask questions at the end.


  • Ros Pyne, Global Director, Research and Open Access at Bloomsbury
  • Lucy Barnes, Senior Editor and Outreach Coordinator, Open book publishers
  • Dominique Walker, Publishing Officer, Scottish Universities Press

Who should attend

The discussions at this event will be of particular interest to:

  • Librarians
  • Research managers
  • Other professionals who support open access in their organisation

But we welcome all interested parties to attend.
