For research articles published via open access journals the Version of Record (VoR) must be made open access on publication via its webiste with a CC BY licence (or CC BY-ND licence if permission granted by UKRI ) or other permitted licence.

For research articles published in a subscription journal the Author's Accepted Manuscript (AAM) (or VoR where publisher permits) is to be deposited into TeesRep at the time of final publication with no embargo.
