Policies of funding bodies

Below we have compiled an overview of the different requirements of major funding bodies with respect to Open Access

Many funding bodies require that publications resulting from funded research be made available to the public on the principle of Open Access. Regardless of the chosen Open Access road (Green, Gold, or Hybrid), all publications should also be deposited in an institutional or subject repository. WU offers its ePubWU repository for this purpose.
