What does your funder require?
Biomedical funders usually require deposit in EuropePMC

open access 24 months after publication
Other Research Councils open access 12 months after publication
6 months, inc books
6 months (12 for AHSS)
My publisher allows Green and Gold,
and the embargo fits my funder’s requirement
My work isn’t funded
You can choose Green or Gold
Things to consider
Do you want immediate open access, on the publisher website?
Would you prefer the publisher PDF to be used in UCL Discovery?
Has UCL joined a publisher membership scheme?
This makes prepaid funds available, at a discount
If you prefer Green, or there’s no Gold option
Deposit in UCL Discovery
